Usage information
In deployments running BGP with 2-byte or 4-byte autonomous systems, auto-EVI automatically creates EVPN instances when you create a virtual network on a VTEP in the overlay network. In auto-EVI mode, the RD and RT values automatically generate:
  • For a 2-byte autonomous system:
    • The RD auto-configures as Type 1 from the overlay network source IP address and the auto-generated EVI index.
    • The RT auto-configures as Type 0 from the 2-byte AS and the 3-byte VNI—Type encoded as 0x0002.
  • For a 4-byte autonomous system:
    • The RD auto-configures as Type 1 from the overlay network source IP address and the auto-generated EVI index.
    • The RT auto-configures as Type 2 from the 4-byte AS and the 2-byte EVI—Type encoded as 0x0202.
Example
