Advertise the static routes configured on L3Out-to-RTR via BGP to L3Out-to-CoreSwitch

Hi,

 

On ACI we have configured two L3Out using BGP as below;

1) L3Out-to-RTR

2) L3Out-to-CoreSwitch

 

I have configured some static routes on L3Out-to-RTR as below;
External Routed Networks->L3Out-to-RTR->Logical Node Profile->Configured Nodes->Node-101 (Static Routes are added here)

Please advise that how I can advertise these static routes via BGP to the CoreSwitch

At the moment, when I run on the Leaf 'show ip route vrf common:xxx' I can see these as static routes, but they are not visible on Leaf ' show ip route bgp vrf common:xxx'

Question: How I can advertise the static routes configured on L3Out-to-RTR to the BGP, so I can see them on LEAF101 BGP table and CoreSwitch BGP table

 

I have drawn a quick diagram to explain the requirement, hope it helps.

Thanks,

Hi @raza555 ,

On the L3Out-to-RTR, add subnet 20.20.20.0/24 under the External EPG and select "External subnets for External EPG"
Now, on the L3Out-to-CoreSwitch add this subnet 20.20.20.0/24 with the "export route control" checked. This will advertise the 20.20.20.0/24 subnet out through the L3Out-to-CoreSwitch.

Make sure you have configured the spines as MP-BGP route reflectors. This is required when you want external routes to be advertised within the fabric. You can follow this link to configure the RRs.

Hi,

Thanks for suggesting the solution.

 

Just for clarity, please find below routings from the ACI.

Please confirm that below solution is good or I need something else to advertise LEAF-01 Static route to CoreSwitch?

 

ACI CURRENT ROUTING:

LEAF-01 is configured with L3Out-to-RTR
LEAF-04 is configured with L3Out-to-CoreSwitch


LEAF-01# show ip route vrf common:ABC 20.20.20.0/24
IP Route Table for VRF "common:ABC"
'*' denotes best ucast next-hop
'**' denotes best mcast next-hop
'[x/y]' denotes [preference/metric]
'%<string>' in via output denotes VRF <string>

20.20.20.0/24, ubest/mbest: 1/0
*via 10.10.10.1, vlan600, [1/0], 01w06d, static


LEAF-04# show ip route vrf common:ABC 20.20.20.0/24
IP Route Table for VRF "common:ABC"
'*' denotes best ucast next-hop
'**' denotes best mcast next-hop
'[x/y]' denotes [preference/metric]
'%<string>' in via output denotes VRF <string>

20.20.20.0/24, ubest/mbest: 2/0
*via 172.30.30.10%overlay-1, [1/0], 02w06d, bgp-65500, internal, tag 65501
recursive next hop: 172.30.30.10/32%overlay-1
*via 172.30.30.11%overlay-1, [1/0], 02w06d, bgp-65500, internal, tag 65501
recursive next hop: 172.30.30.11/32%overlay-1


By looking at the above routing for clarity; Please suggest shall I just configure 'L3Out-to-CoreSwitch' as follows

SOLUTION:
1) L3Out-to-CoreSwitch
Network->EPG-L3Out-to-CoreSwitch
Subnets:
20.20.20.0/24 Export Route Control Subnet

 

2) L3Out-to-CoreSwitch
Route map for import and export route control
ACI-TO-CoreSwitch
Match Prefix: (ADD BELOW SUBNET)
20.20.20.0/24

 

By looking at the routings or LEAF-01 & LEAF-04, Do I need to do to anything under L3Out-to-RTR?

Thanks,

Hi @raza555,

Looks good, route map is not absolutely required though.

Thanks alot for great help.
