BGP Path Selection Manipulation Issues!

Hello All,

I'm a beginner in BGP and I'm experiencing an issue. I have two CSR1000v routers, R1 and R2, both connected to a single link provided by my ISP, which is divided into two VLANs, 1040 and 1041. Currently, both BGP sessions are up, and initially, the IN and OUT traffic was going through R1. However, I wanted to change the traffic to flow through R2, and monitored this change using my SNMP monitor, and I observed that the outgoing traffic (BGP-OUT) correctly switched to R2. But the incoming traffic (BGP-IN) did not follow suit, it continued to go through R1. I made the following configuration changes on my router, but the issue persisted.

 

 

R1
router bgp 376786
neighbor 175.32.118.12 remote-as 60849
!
neighbor 175.32.118.12 activate
neighbor 175.32.118.12 next-hop-self
neighbor 175.32.118.12 soft-reconfiguration inbound
neighbor 175.32.118.12 route-map ebgpin in
neighbor 175.32.118.12 route-map ebgpout out
exit-address-family
!
route-map ebgpin permit 10
match ip address prefix-list defaultv4
!
route-map ebgpout permit 10
match ip address prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp
set as-path prepend 376786 376786 376786
!
ip prefix-list defaultv4 seq 10 permit 0.0.0.0/0
!
ip prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp seq 5 permit 23.158.4.0/24
ip prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp seq 10 permit 23.182.103.0/24
ip prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp seq 50 deny 0.0.0.0/0
R2
router bgp 61273
 neighbor 175.32.118.16 remote-as 60849
 !
 address-family ipv4
  neighbor 175.32.118.16 activate
  neighbor 175.32.118.16 next-hop-self
  neighbor 175.32.118.16 soft-reconfiguration inbound
  neighbor 175.32.118.16 route-map ebgpin in
  neighbor 175.32.118.16 route-map ebgpout out
 !
route-map ebgpin permit 10 
 match ip address prefix-list defaultv4
 set local-preference 200
!
route-map ebgpout permit 10 
 match ip address prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp
!
ip prefix-list defaultv4 seq 10 permit 0.0.0.0/0
!
ip prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp seq 5 permit 23.158.4.0/24
ip prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp seq 10 permit 23.182.103.0/24
ip prefix-list v4-bgp-filter-ixp seq 50 deny 0.0.0.0/0

 

 

Note: R1 is in AS 376786, and R2 is in AS 61273. Both router has eBGP using LAN IPs

I'm wondering if anyone has any insights into what might be causing this problem. Above is the BGP configuration on my routers for reference.

Thanks,

Sanju.

Hi @san ju. ,

And traffic is still coming via R1 after running soft reset?

If so, I would suggest you talk to your ISP (AS60849). They will be able to tell you why the traffic still goes through R1 even after prepending your ASN multiple times.

Hi @san ju. ,

Did you do a soft clear on the ISP session on R1 after changing the

route-map

?

clear bgp ipv4 unicast 175.32.118.12 soft out
