Different vrfs Same BGP Peer IP.

Wed Aug 29, 2018 3:12 pm

Hi all.

I'm curious if anyone has a solution for this.

I'm trying to peer to the same BGP Peer IP in different VRFS. But i'm getting the error "failure: already exists" even though the BGP Instance is in different VRFS.

Or maybe someone has a work around ?
Sample config

/interface wireless security-profiles
set [ find default=yes ] supplicant-identity=MikroTik
/routing bgp instance
set default routing-table=ether1
add as=1 name=ether1 router-id= routing-table=ether1
add as=1 name=ether8 router-id= routing-table=ether8
/ip address
add address= interface=ether8 network=
add address= interface=ether1 network=
/ip dhcp-client
add dhcp-options=hostname,clientid disabled=no interface=ether1
/ip route vrf
add export-route-targets=65000:1 import-route-targets=65000:1 interfaces=ether8 route-distinguisher=65000:1 \
add export-route-targets=65000:2 import-route-targets=65000:2 interfaces=ether1 route-distinguisher=65000:2 \
/routing bgp peer
add instance=ether1 name=peer1 remote-address= remote-as=1
[admin@MikroTik] > routing bgp peer add instance=ether8 name=peer2 remote-address= remote-as=2
failure: already exists
