HPE HSR6800 MPLS and BGP FREE Core

Hi All,

Is anyone using any of the HPE products for BGP transit / Peering? We are planning to setup MPLS core based on HPE 10500 switches, due to it's RIB/FIB limitations we will not be running BGP.  Our edge is based on HSR 6800s and will be taking full BGP feed and some Public peering. We will need to use the core for transit and therefore will be enabling MPLS on 6800s however, from the testing we've done it doesn't appear to push traffic down the LSPs between the HSRs. So question is, can global BGP table be used or do we need to setup an INTERNET VRF (VPN instance)?

When peering using global ipv4 table, peer1 can't reach peer2. However when peer1 and peer2 are placed into VRF, it is working.

[PEER-1]---[HSR1]---[CORE1]---[CORE2]---[HSR2]---[PEER2]

 

Thank you

Re: HPE HSR6800 MPLS and BGP FREE Core

For anyone running into similar issue and want to avoid having full BGP feed in a VRF (vpn instance), i've managed to crack this.

You will need to enable below under your iBGP Peering:

  • label-route-capability

Create route-policy with following apply action:

  • mpls-label

Apply route-policy to your iBGP peering in the outbound i.e export direction (towards the peer).

Hope this helps.
