Loopback0 is used for IBGP peering while physical interface address is used for EBGP. Identify the IBGP issues on R1 to R2, R3 and EBGP issues to RA and fix them so that the “show ip bgp” command on R1 will display all loopback interfaces of other routers.


Configs on R1:

This lab is for BGP only so we only need to check BGP section

R1#show running-config
—-output omitted—-
router bgp 64520
network mask
neighbor IBGP peer-group
neighbor IBGP remote-as 64550
neighbor IBGP update-source loopback0
neighbor peer-group IBGP
neighbor peer-group IBGP
neighbor remote-as 64525

—-output omitted—-


We see there are two issues here (two commands in bold), the first one is IBGP issue and the second one is EBGP issue.

R1(config)#router bgp 64520
R1(config-router)#neighbor IBGP remote-as 64520
R1(config-router)#no neighbor remote-as 64525
R1(config-router)#neighbor remote-as 64525

+ In the second statement we fix the IBGP group to “remote-as 64520” without removing the wrongly configured IBGP group (“neighbor IBGP remote-as 64550”) because if we remove this statement, other related statements of IBGP (three statements “neighbor IBGP update-source Loopback0”, “neighbor peer-group IBGP”, “neighbor peer-group IBGP”) will be removed automatically because IBGP group no longer exists.
+ Also in statement 2 the “IBGP” group must be written in capital. You will receive an error if writing it in lowercase.
+ The IP addresses in the exam are different but the concept is still the same so please read the question carefully

After solving the problem don’t forget to verify with the “show ip bgp” command. You must see all the Loopback interfaces of other routers. Otherwise please check your commands again.

    I Just passed today. All Premium Member content are valid. I had 24 questions in total. 2 simulations (HSRP and BGP simulations), 2 IPv6 tickets, around 9 or 10 IPv4 tickets, and the rest was Q & A. All the 24 questions is in the Premium Member content. But many ping symtoms are differents from the Networktut simulation. Next step CCIE

    Thanks Networktut

    @Networktut: Do you have the Q & A for CCIE written exam ?

    this question was confusing because the routing table didnt show correctly due to the size of the window. my advice is to do

    1. show ip bgp ( to confirm the output )
    2. enter the fix ( point to the right remote-as number, i didn’t do a delete. i just issue a new line )
    3. then show ip bgp again and compare with the example
    4. enter the faulty command and you will see it goes back to the 1st output
    5. enter the correct command and you will see it changing again.

    Hi all,
    The sim is appearing again in the exam.
    Does someone have a strategy/ plan to solve this sim?
    How do I check for the new IPs? Is there a step by step plan/tut?
    Thank you

    in the exam, how can I login to the router? is there a password? what is the command line to login? do I have to type in “enable” or something? thanks!

    in the exam will we also get a picture of all the devices and all the IP addresses etc. like here?

  30. BGPsim
    March 11th, 2019

    how did you find out the IP addresses:

    neighbor remote-as 64525
    R1(config-router)#no neighbor remote-as 64525

    This was in my test last week.
    @BGPsim you have an explanation of the objective and the diagram above is almost identical. It sims you consoled into R1 and you have to follow the instructions to get logged in. IIRC I show run then was able to run the same commands as above but not relying on memorization as the numbers/IPs could change.
