Pass VRF routes from Cisco to Brocade

  • 1.  Pass VRF routes from Cisco to Brocade

    Posted 03-15-2019 12:04 PM

    Hello,

     

    I’m a Cisco guy with a Brocade router, and my ignorance is showing.  I am trying to get vrf routes passed from my Cisco router to my Brocade router.  While I feel like I’m incredibly close, I’m still missing the clue.  Outputs are below, and please let me know if there is more info that would be useful.  The routes appear on the Brocade via BGP, but do not show up in vrf routes.  They just do not get put into the routing table.  If you could please assist me in getting these routes to show up properly I would be forever grateful.

    Hi Antonio,

     

    This is a Brocade CER router.  Is that still going to go to the Ruckus area?

     

    Thanks for the reply.
