Hi guys, I´ve a question about the default route advetisement under MPLS backbone.
The client A (vrf_a) only has static routing at both sites (X, Y) in my MPLS backbone, he needs to advetise the static route 0.0.0.0/0 from site X to site Y but it doesn´t propagate to the rest of MPLS network, why?
this is my configuration:
router bgp 22345 rd 22345:800 address-family ipv4 unicast redistribute connected redistribute static ! ! router static vrf vrf_a address-family ipv4 unicast 0.0.0.0/0 10.21.200.186 description default_route 192.168.201.0/24 10.21.242.186 description LAN_MATRIZ
only the specific route 192.168.201.0/24 is propagated, but the default 0.0.0.0/0 doesn´t.
Only if I set the command
default-information originate under BGP vrf_a instance the default route is propagated, why? is this a correct behavour?
Please your feedback.
Thanks in advance.
