HI Aman,

                Actually the configuration is a two step process.

First, we need to create a vrf-policy under router bgp like so

vrf-policy cust0

  label 1357


  rd 437:612

  rt import 452:424

  rt export 516:943



vrf-policy cust1

  label 1730


  rd 66:33

  rt import 906:551

  rt export 890:543



vrf-policy cust2

  label 32639


  rd 14:619

  rt import 904:272

  rt export 233:507


Then you need to exit the router bgp configuration and add routes to a particular vrf using add command

add vrf cust0

Note that the cust0 name must be the same value defined under vrf-policy. Currently, the next hop is defined on a per vrf basis. This is a known limitation.

Subject: [FROG] How to configure RFC 4364 (BGP/MPLS) VPNs with FRR/bgpd


How do I configure FRR/bgpd to support RFC 4364 (BGP/MPLS) L3-VPNs?

Specifically, I'd like to know how to configure following things:

*       One or more VRFs along with its import and export route targets as well as route-distinguisher.

   *    Specifying one or more neighbors (eBGP sessions) in this VRF with IPv4(|6) address family.

*       One or more iBGP sessions with route-reflectors and other routers supporting VPNv4(|6) address family.
