We are configuring L3 VPN service using EVPN route type 5. I can see the route in the bgp table of the VRF but in the route table, the destination of the learned prefix is null0. Can someone explain why and how to fix it? I am running vEOS 4.24.0F in our lab.

Here is the output of the bgp table in the VRF:

AT1-R1#show ip bgp vrf CORE
BGP routing table information for VRF CORE

Here is the output of the route table in the vrf:

AT1-R1#show ip route vrf CORE

Codes: C – connected, S – static, K – kernel,
O – OSPF, IA – OSPF inter area, E1 – OSPF external type 1,
E2 – OSPF external type 2, N1 – OSPF NSSA external type 1,
N2 – OSPF NSSA external type2, B – BGP, B I – iBGP, B E – eBGP,

NG – Nexthop Group Static Route, V – VXLAN Control Service,
DH – DHCP client installed default route, M – Martian,
DP – Dynamic Policy Route, L – VRF Leaked,
RC – Route Cache Route

Gateway of last resort is not set

B E [20/0]
via, Ethernet5
C [0/0]
via Ethernet5, directly connected
B E [20/0]

You can see that the prefix is already imported to the bgp table within the VRF but the route table show destination of Null0 instead the remote VTEP ip address.

Thanks alot

Hi Duc

Thanks for reaching out !

Do you mind sharing the output of the following command: "show ip route"

Additionally, if  you can attach the output of "show tech-support | no", it will be very helpful as it will give all necessary information we need to investigate this.

Hi Duc,

Thank you for contacting Arista.

Could you please provide us the topology diagram explaining the flow of traffic.

In addition to the above outputs could you please provide us the below logs:

show tech-support bgp  | no

show tech extended evpn | no

We are suspecting the possibility of routing loop here and the above logs would help in investigating the same.
