Evaluating the Solution to Check Whether the Network Problem Is Resolved
Description: If the problem is solved, you are finished. If the problem remains or a new problem is identified, start the process over again.
You can address possible causes in any order. In relation to the network in Isolating a Broken Network Connection, we chose to work from the local router toward the remote router, but you might start at a different point, particularly if you have reason to believe that the problem is related to a known issue, such as a recent change in configuration.
To evaluate the solution, enter the following Junos OS CLI commands:
user@R6> show route 10.0.0.5 inet.0: 20 destinations, 20 routes (20 active, 0 holddown, 0 hidden) + = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both 10.0.0.5/32 *[BGP/170] 00:01:35, MED 5, localpref 100, from 10.0.0.2 AS path: 65001 I > to 10.1.26.1 via so-0/0/2.0 user@R6> ping 10.0.0.5 PING 10.0.0.5 (10.0.0.5): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 10.0.0.5: icmp_seq=0 ttl=253 time=0.866 ms 64 bytes from 10.0.0.5: icmp_seq=1 ttl=253 time=0.837 ms 64 bytes from 10.0.0.5: icmp_seq=2 ttl=253 time=0.796 ms ^C --- 10.0.0.5 ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.796/0.833/0.866/0.029 ms user@R6> traceroute 10.0.0.5 traceroute to 10.0.0.5 (10.0.0.5), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets 1 10.1.26.1 (10.1.26.1) 0.629 ms 0.538 ms 0.497 ms 2 10.1.12.1 (10.1.12.1) 0.534 ms 0.538 ms 0.510 ms 3 10.0.0.5 (10.0.0.5) 0.776 ms 0.705 ms 0.672 ms
The sample output shows that there is now a connection between R6 and R5. The show route command shows that the BGP route to R5 is preferred, as indicated by the asterisk (*). The ping command is successful and the traceroute command shows that the path from R6 to R5 is through R2 (10.1.26.1), and then through R1 (10.1.12.1).
