VRF and route leaking not working

Hi all,

 

I would like to set up VRF and route-leak. But, for unknown reasons, routing between global and VRF RIBs does not seem to work.

 

Below is my running configuration:

 

!! IOS XR Configuration 6.1.2
!! Last configuration change at Wed Oct 24 14:52:08 2018 by admin
!
vrf test
address-family ipv4 unicast
import route-target
65000:666
!
export route-target
65000:666
!
!
!
interface MgmtEth0/0/CPU0/0
ipv4 address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0
!
interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0/0

!

However, I cannot ping from global RIB to the VRF:

# ping 10.118.6.1
Wed Oct 24 15:28:21.311 UTC
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 10.118.6.1, timeout is 2 seconds:
.....
Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)

neither from the VRF to the global:

# ping vrf test 10.119.6.1
Wed Oct 24 15:29:34.956 UTC
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 10.119.6.1, timeout is 2 seconds:
.....
Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)

Am I missing something in the configuration ? I already configured route leaking from global to vrf and vice versa.

 

Any ideas are really wellcome.

 

Best regards,

Please provide

 

 

show cef vrf test x.x.x.x detail

show cef x.x.x.x detail

 

lets see what cef says the next hop is.

 

if its drop..may need to add static routes like this

 

router static

address-family ipv4 unicast

x.x.x.x/x vrf test y.y.y.y/y

Thank you for your interest.

Please find below the command's results

The outgoing interface is unknown, can we try adding a next hop ip or an outgoing interface to your static route statements?

While it is working when leaking vrf routes with the following route:

 

 

router static
  address-family ipv4 unicast
    10.118.6.0/25 vrf test GigabitEthernet0/0/0/2

it does not work when trying to leak global routes to the vrf test:

 

 

 

router static
 vrf test
   address-family ipv4 unicast
     0.0.0.0/0 vrf default 10.117.6.1

nor

 

 

router static
 vrf test
   address-family ipv4 unicast
     0.0.0.0/0 vrf default GigabitEthernet0/0/0/1

 

In fact, the route is not even installed in the routing table:

 

# sh route vrf test
Fri Oct 26 10:32:41.729 UTC

Codes: C - connected, S - static, R - RIP, B - BGP, (>) - Diversion path
       D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
       N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
       E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E - EGP
       i - ISIS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2
       ia - IS-IS inter area, su - IS-IS summary null, * - candidate default
       U - per-user static route, o - ODR, L - local, G  - DAGR, l - LISP
       A - access/subscriber, a - Application route
       M - mobile route, r - RPL, (!) - FRR Backup path

Gateway of last resort is not set

C    10.118.6.0/25 is directly connected, 00:20:33, GigabitEthernet0/0/0/2
L    10.118.6.1/32 is directly connected, 00:20:33, GigabitEthernet0/0/0/2

can we try this please?

 

router static
 vrf test
   address-family ipv4 unicast
     0.0.0.0/0 vrf default GigabitEthernet0/0/0/1 10.117.6.[2] >>> not sure what the other side is

When doing this, I've always had to use the name of the physical or virtual interface for the next hop, not the IP address. However, I've never done this with a default route before.

 

I know this is a ridiculous question, but is gi0/0/0/1 connected and up?

In fact, it does not work with the default route. I then statically added DirectlyConnected routes to the vrf and force vrf test to look in the default vrf.
