Route Redistribution

Multiple protocols, such as BGP (Border Gateway Protocol), OSPF (Open Shortest Path First), and RIP (Routing Information Protocol), can be enabled simultaneously on the switch. Route redistribution allows the switch to exchange routes, including static and direct routes, between any two routing protocols.

Exporting routes from another protocol to BGP and from BGP to another protocol are discrete configuration functions. For example, to run Open Shortest Path First version 3 and BGP simultaneously, you must first configure both protocols and then verify the independent operation of each. Then you can configure the routes to export from OSPFv3 to BGP and the routes to export from BGP to OSPFv3.
