Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


Current implementation of BGP large-communities seems to not work as expected as the generated configuration form the - ancient - CLI definition files is not properly passed down to FRR. Seems this was lost in translation when migrating from Quagga to FRR two years ago.

This task is created as per request from a friend of a friend - sometimes social contacts still work!

c-po changed the task status from Open to Backport candidate.Jul 5 2020, 2:10 PM
c-po assigned this task to Viacheslav.

@Viacheslav could you please check if this probably should make it into 1.2.6 in addition?

Community/large/extend community lists syntax was updated by FRR with "detail"

So should be cherry-pick this to 1.2.6?

@c-po Yes, I checked it on Crux.
Works as expected.

c-po moved this task from Needs Triage to Finished on the VyOS 1.2 Crux (VyOS 1.2.6) board.
