VXLAN and BGP EVPN Configuration Guide for Dell EMC SmartFabric OS10 Release 10.5.2



Configures the Route Target (RT) values that EVPN routes use.

route-target {auto | value {import | export | both} [asn4]}
value {import | export | both}
Configure an RT import or export value, or both values in the format 2-octet-ASN:4-octet-number or 4-octet-ASN:2-octet-number.
  • The 2-octet ASN or number is 1 to 65535.
  • The 4-octet ASN or number is 1 to 4294967295.
Configure the RT import and export values to automatically generate.
(Optional) Advertises a 4-byte AS number in RT values.

Usage information

A RT determines how EVPN routes distribute among EVPN instances. Configure each RT with an import and export value. When the EVPN routes advertise, the RT export value configured for export attaches to each route. The receiving VTEP compares a route export value with the local RT import value. If the values match, the routes download and install on the VTEP.

  • For 2-byte autonomous systems, the RT auto-configures as Type 0 from the 2-byte AS and the 3-byte VNI—Type encoded as 0x0002.
  • For 4-byte autonomous systems, the RT auto-configures as Type 2 from the 4-byte AS and the 2-byte EVI—Type encoded as 0x0202.

Configure a route target in a tenant VRF used for EVPN symmetric IRB traffic. The route-target command is supported in EVPN-VRF mode in 10.5.1 and later releases. In EVPN-VRF command mode, the manual route-target configuration should be unique across VRFs.
