Configuring Interfaces, Protocols, and Routes of the Virtual Route Reflector Using Junos CLI

  1. Using the Junos CLI in the virtual machine console, configure the interfaces that were connected to the OVS virtual switch-br (for KVM or OpenStack) or the vSwitch (for VMware). Specify the IP addresses that were assigned to the VNICs while configuring OVS (KVM) or vSwitch (VMware).
  2. Configure the loopback interface with the IP address for the vRR.
  3. Add a static default route to the gateway address of the management IP address:
  4. Configure the hostname for the vRR.
  5. Configure the root password.
  6. Add a user.
  7. Set the user identification (UID).
  8. Assign the user to a login class.
  9. Set the user password.
  10. Enable Telnet and FTP access.
  11. Configure the types of system log messages to send to files and to user terminals.
  12. Configure the vRR to always use 64-bit processing.
  13. Configure the router ID and the autonomous system (AS) number.
  14. Configure BGP, including the cluster identifier and the neighbor relationships with all IBGP-enabled devices in the autonomous system (AS).
  15. (External peers only) Specify that the BGP next-hop value not be changed.
  16. Configure a forwarding-table export policy to prevent the installation of BGP routes in the forwarding table. A vRR is not expected to be in the forwarding path for BGP service prefixes.
  17. Apply the BGP policy to the forwarding table.
  18. Configure other desired protocols for the interfaces.
