Im trying to figure out the best way to get a default route into my test vrf. Since Im doing BGP between all my PEs, it seems sensible that I try to originate the default route in BGP instead of redistributing it from another protocol. Im having problems doing this.
- Ive tried to default-information originate within the ipv4 address family, then redistribute that default from the global table into the VRF, but Cisco doesn like bgp to bgp redistribution.
- The BGP sessions that are established between the PEs are established via the global table, not from within the ipv4 vrf address family, so I can configure default-originate from in there either.
- Id rather not establish sessions with other PEs from within the ipv4 vrf address family. Other than being able to see the default route in that address family, theres really no other information that has to be in that routing table, so unless theres no other way to do what I want, I don see a need to complicate that routing table at all.
Any ideas? Im sure its possible, Im just still a bit ignorant.
Thanks in advance.
