bgp as-override and remove private as seems to be not working

Fri Oct 07, 2022 5:55 pm

Hi all,...
I have build up the follwing lab:

CE1 (AS65533)-----ebgp--->PE1(AS100)----->P1---->PE2(AS100)----ebgp---->CE2(AS200)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ^--------------ibgp------------^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At CE1 I inject a route 172.16.1.0/24 and export ist to PE1.... --> Works fine in first step..
PE1 gives the route to PE2 via ibgp --> works fine as well
PE2 gives the route to CE2 ---- Well done!!! Route is seen, Controlplane works well.

Now:
I have tried the remove private as feature as well as the as-override feature configured at PE1 at the ebgp session towards CE1.
But nothing happend. The route attributes are always the same logged at PE2.
See:
Without any route-manipulation on PE2:
[lab@PE2] > routing/route/print detail where dst-address=172.16.1.0/24
Flags: X - disabled, F - filtered, U - unreachable, A - active;
c - connect, s - static, r - rip, b - bgp, o - ospf, d - dhcp, v - vpn, m - modem, a - ldp-address, l - ldp-mapping, y - copy;
H - hw-offloaded; + - ecmp, B - blackhole
Ab afi=ip4 contribution=active dst-address=172.16.1.0/24
routing-table=main gateway=192.168.1.1
immediate-gw=192.168.100.1%ether1 distance=200 scope=40
target-scope=30 belongs-to="bgp-IP-10.0.0.2"
bgp.peer-cache-id=*B000002 .as-path="65533" .local-pref=100
.atomic-aggregate=yes .origin=igp
debug.fwp-ptr=0x202822A0
[lab@PE2] >

With as-override configured towards CE-1:
[lab@PE2] > routing/route/print detail where dst-address=172.16.1.0/24
Flags: X - disabled, F - filtered, U - unreachable, A - active;
c - connect, s - static, r - rip, b - bgp, o - ospf, d - dhcp, v - vpn, m - modem, a - ldp-address, l - ldp-mapping, y - copy;
H - hw-offloaded; + - ecmp, B - blackhole
Ab afi=ip4 contribution=active dst-address=172.16.1.0/24
routing-table=main gateway=192.168.1.1
immediate-gw=192.168.100.1%ether1 distance=200 scope=40
target-scope=30 belongs-to="bgp-IP-10.0.0.2"

.atomic-aggregate=yes .origin=igp
debug.fwp-ptr=0x202822A0
[lab@PE2] >

With remove "private as" from PE1 towards ebgp to CE1
[lab@PE2] > routing/route/print detail where dst-address=172.16.1.0/24
Flags: X - disabled, F - filtered, U - unreachable, A - active;

debug.fwp-ptr=0x202822A0
[lab@PE2] >

As you can see---> always the same .as-path="65533" is showen at the output.
Did I something wrong or is this a bug ?

I have tried this configuration with RouterOS 7.5 and RouterOS7.6rc1 (Because of the BGP-advertised feature).. always the same.

Thank you for your time community...

Andreas

Currently as-override and some other AS Hacks are not fully implemented.

Thank you for fast answering my question.
Was my idea of configuration correct? Yes?

Is "remove-private-as" or "next-hop-self" not implemented as well?

Does anybody think it is possible to publish a list of feature that doesn' t work at the moment?
Is is really frustrating to check this by try and error.

If I switch back to any RouterOS version 6.anything, will it work then ?

So remove-private-as=yes isn't working in 7.7b6. Hopefully this is one of the 'hacks' that will get fixed soon, no?

We tried to replace a lot of ccr1072 (6.49) with ccr2216 (7.6). The missing AS Override makes the new ccr2216 routers useless for BGP. This is a must have feature in all larger setups. No idea why this simple thing is missing on the flagship router.

Hi MT Community,

just stumbled across the same issue today, as my Transit Provider is filtering all received routes with private ASNs in the path.

remote-private-as would have been the solution, but it doesn't seem to work.
as-override as a workaround could have been possible (not great, but anyways) , but it doesn't seem to work as well.
as-path is not writeable in routing/filter/rules, so manually changing via filter is not possible as well.

The only solution i could find so far is manually adding static routes for these subnets (luckily not a lot so far in my case).

Did anyone find a better / nicer solution so far?

I checked 7.7 stable and 7.8 testing changelog, but it doesn't look like a quick fix will be available quite soon.

Thanks,
Stephan
