Default route update on Nexus 7K

Default route update on Nexus 7K

 

As per the attached picture.

I have 4 Nexus 7k which are connected via eBGP.

Nexus 3 & 4 advertise the default route to the Nexus 1 & 2

 

Nexus 1 & 2 are also connected to Router 1 & 2

Router 2 is advertising its default routes into EIGRP

 

Nexus 1 & 2 have a default route via eBGP to Nexus 3 & 4 in the routing table

and a default route in the EIGRP topology table to Router 2

eBGP default route with AD 20

EIGRP default route with AD 170

 

The connection to Nexus 3 & 4 is cut

Now the default is to Router 2 via EIGRP

 

The eBGP connection to Nexus 3 & 4 is restored

However the eBGP default does not take over from the EIGRP default route in the IP routing table.

I had to clear the ip routing tables default route to get the eBGP defalt route to take over.

 

Has anyone seen this behaviour, this seems to be a bug to me.

I would expect the IP routing table to update when the better route is avilable via eBGP when the connection is restored.

 

As always any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Default route update on Nexus 7K

I added a local preference to route via the preffered path to fix the issue immediately.

 

Afterwards I found a BGP network 0.0.0.0 statement that then caused the default to originate on the offending router.

Removing this the issue was resolved for sure but have left the Local Preference in place anyway.

Cheers for the assistance.

Re: Default route update on Nexus 7K

Hi

Can you share the output of the following commands (in the scenario where default route is learned over eigrp and the ebgp isn't installed):
- sh ip bgp
- sh ip bgp 0.0.0.0

Thanks
Francesco

Re: Default route update on Nexus 7K

Can you run the sh ip bgp 0.0.0.0 when the ebgp route is installed. There's something that doesn't match your design and just want to validate please.

Also can you share the config of your bgp and eigrp config just in case.

Thanks
Francesco
