RE: BGP Conditional advertisement - exist-map option posted 08/14/2006
[Chronological Index] [Thread Index] [Top] [Date Prev][Date Next] [Thread Prev][Thread Next]


	The documentation is correct, however badly worded it is. "the
condition is met when the prefix exists in both the advertise map and
the exist map" means that the prefix matched in the exist map must be in
the BGP table, and that the prefix matched in the advertise map must
also be in the BGP table.  

	They're basically saying that you can't choose an arbitrary
prefix w.x.y.z/len to advertise in the advertise map if you don't
already have it in the BGP table, i.e. this feature is not for prefix
origination but instead just for conditional prefix propagation.
