Creating a VRF and Assigning a Route Distinguisher

To create a VRF:

  1. Access the desired virtual router context.
    host1(config)#virtual-router vr1
  2. Create the VRF(s) for that VR.
    host1:vr1(config)#ip vrf vrfA

The route distinguisher enables you to establish unique VPN-IPv4 addresses to accommodate the possibility that more than one VPN might use the same IP address from their private address spaces.
