    bridge vpls route-target

    Syntax

    [ no ] bridge vplsName vpls route-target { import | export | both } extendedCommunity

    Release Information

    Command introduced in JunosE Release 7.1.0.

    Description

    Creates or adds to a list of VPN extended communities that the router uses to determine which routes are imported by a VPLS instance that uses BGP as the signaling protocol. The no version removes a route target from the specified list.

    A route is imported into the BGP address family for a specified VPLS instance when both of the following conditions are met:

    • An update message with a route-target export list advertises a route.
    • That list contains at least one route target that matches a route target in the route-target import list associated with a VPLS instance.

    The bridge vpls route-target command is not valid for a VPLS instance that uses LDP as the signaling protocol. To configure a VPLS instance with LDP signaling, use the mpls ldp vpls vpls-id command and the mpls ldp vpls neighbor command.

    Note: The bridge vpls route-target command is available for a VPLS instance only after you issue the bridge vpls transport-virtual-router command, which creates the VPLS instance and configures the transport virtual router.

    Options

    • vplsName—Name of a VPLS instance created with the bridge vpls transport-virtual-router command
    • import—Adds the route target to the specified VPLS instance's import list; the VPLS instance accepts only routes that have at least one route target that matches a route target in the import list
    • export—Adds the route target to the specified VPLS instance's export list; all routes advertised from this VPLS instance are associated with the export list
    • both—Adds the route target to both the import list and export list of the specified VPLS instance. This is the recommended setting for a VPLS instance
    • extendedCommunity—Two-part number in the format number1:number2 that identifies an extended community of VPNs, where:
      • number1—Autonomous system (AS) number or an IP address
      • number2—Unique integer; 32 bits if number1 is an AS number; 16 bits if number1 is an IP address
