Thanks for the reply. Both my interface to the exchange and interface to Zayo have global IPv6 addresses. I'm in a /64 at the exchange and /126 with Zayo.Does your IPv6 peering use link-local addressing or globally-unique (public) addressing?
I've seen some issues with link-local next hop in ROS's IPv6 BGP.
I agree 100%It could be something to do with CCR & 1 CPU Core for BGP
Hi ZeroByte,Multiple peers to the same remote ASN shouldn't give any problems like this.
Did you configure this as a second BGP instance? If so, then you shouldn't do it that way, it should just be two peers for the same local BGP instance.
Another thing it could be....
Are your sessions using eBGP multihop, or are you peering with the remote IP on each directly-connected WAN link? If multihop, then make sure that the new peer's IP address is static-routed via link 2, and that link 1's peer is static routed via link 1.
Thanks, i get what you mean in the response above.. priceless info. I will start a new post with some of the challenges i have faced deploying IPv6 hopefully you may have some input as well as the other individuals that have successfully deployed IPv6 on this forum. Africa is obviously lagging behind in IPv6 deployment at the moment but with the help of you all should be a breeze hehe... thanks again ZeroByte.I don't think it would be that much of a problem to run IPv4 in an instance and IPv6 in a different instance, since the two routing tables have nothing to do with each other anyway.
The problem with using different instances for different eBGP peers in the same protocol is that BGP won't be able to properly compare the paths with each other prior to choosing the best BGP route. Each instance would have one and only one route, all of which would be attempting to activate themselves in the RIB, and then you could only choose between them by setting different admin distances for each instance.
That's bad, mm-kay?
But since IPv6 routes don't have anything to do with IPv4 routes, it shouldn't be an issue (at least no issues come to my mind right now).
