Each nexus can only see its own connected link to the 10.170.199.0/29 network, because if nexus 1 could see the other 10.170.199.8/29 subnet it would push traffic over the peerlink that connect the 2 nexus devices together and you are not suppose to that because the link is for vPC traffic only. Did that make sense?
Yes it does.
I'm pretty sure it's failing because on the MPLS router it's the same neighbor address.
Well if each n5k was a route reflector then the MPLS and bottom routers would peer with each n5k so you would not get the issues of the same address. Unfortunately i don't have a lab to test and i don't know if this would require an IBGP connection between the actual 2 n5ks which may well use the peerlink. So i can't say for sure that is a solution.
Is there a possibility of running an IGP such as OSPF or EIGRP between the n5ks and the bottom router and then redistribute BGP learned routes into the IGP. Then the bottom router would see equal cost paths. If you wanted to use one path and only use the other for backup you can influence the metrics when you redsitribute.
But i appreciate this could be a big change in your network.
HELP!!! hi i was wondering if you could help me i brought an ap1131ag hoping i could use it as like a second wireless router so i can use internet in all rooms of my house as signal is unreachable in some. i just carnt make sense of the instruction im not sure how to do this . if you could send me down the right track it would be a great help and i find the rest of the way thnx
Would BGP confederations work in this scenario as well? I know its a small network, but just trying to figure out what could have been done. I did get it working with an additional neighbor statement on each router, top and bottom.
