route_type Specifies the source or origin of the route types to be exported to remote PE routers. Valid Types: blackhole, direct, and bgp, and static .
address-family Specifies the address family for the exported routes. Valid types are vpnv4.

Usage Guidelines

This command enables a PE router to advertise learned routes from CE routers to remote PE routers in a Service Provider's backbone. Executing this command allows the PE router to convert VRF native IPv4 routes into VPN-IPv4 route,s and advertise to all remote PE BGP neighbors as VPN-IPv4 routes.


The following command enables BGP to advertise a vpnv4 route named "corp1_vpn_vrf":

  switch 19 # enable bgp export "corp1_vpn_vrf" bgp address-family vpnv4    


This command was first added in ExtremeXOS 15.3.
