Hi everyone,I am curious about the purpose of gateway community in EVPN BGP VXLAN when announcing gateway MAC IPI have a sample config on vQFX VTEP ( L2/L3 gateway):root@S1# show protocols evpn | display setset protocols evpn encapsulation vxlanset protocols evpn extended-vni-list allset protocols evpn default-gateway no-gateway-community
root@S1# show interfaces irb.700 | display setset interfaces irb unit 700 family inet address 172.17.1.1/24As expected , when I look at the capture, there is no gateway community announced for Typ2 MAC/IP route for gateway irb.700I modified the config to announce gateway MAC/IP type 2 route along with gateway community:root@S1# set protocols evpn default-gateway advertiseIndeed MAC/IP Type 2 route for irb.700 is announced along with gateway community but it carries no valuable info , so what is the point of announcing gateway community then?
If I check this https://www.juniper.net/documentation/us/en/software/junos/evpn-vxlan/topics/ref/statement/default-gateway.html
I would say you will need to have a VGA configured to see the difference.BR,
