The focus of this lab is to understand MP-BGP implementation and configuration in Cisco IOS routers. Additional technologies include attribute manipulation and route redistribution.
The lab network topology is illustrated below:
Configure hostnames and IPv6 addressing on all routers as illustrated in the network topology.Â
Configure OSPFv3 on R1 and R2. Enable OSPFv3 for the WAN interfaces of R1 and R2. Do NOT advertise R1 or R2s LAN subnet using OSPFv3. Ensure that R1s LAN subnet is advertised as an external Type 1 LSA. Verify the configuration using the appropriate commands.
Configure MP-BGP on R2, R3 and R4. All routers should use Link Local addresses for peering and establishing MP-BGP sessions. Verify your configuration
Advertise the LAN subnets of R1, R2, and R3 via MP-BGP. Verify your configuration.
Redistribute between MP-BGP and OSPFv3 on R2. Ensure that ONLY the LAN subnets are redistributed. Verify your configuration using the appropriate commands.
Configure your network so that all routers can ping each others' LAN subnets from their own local LAN subnet, i.e. LAN-to-LAN pings. Verify your configuration using extended ping. When completing this task, adhere to the following restrictions:
1. You are NOT allowed to enable an IGP within AS 254
2. You are NOT allowed to configure static routes on R2, R3 and R4
3. You are NOT allowed to create any tunnels
4. You are NOT allowed to advertise the WAN prefixes via BGP
5. You are NOT allowed to use MP-BGP default routing
