The video lays a foundation of building a scalable BGP topology on Cisco router using route-reflectors. We will go through what you need to know about route-reflector rules of route advertisement, both single and dual route-reflector topology, and the significance of a cluster ID. We will also touch on expanding BGP topology even further with route reflector hierarchy.  
Part 3 of this video goes over route advertisement characteristics and route reflector hierarchy

Hey man,

First off... really great tutorials. The best I've come across for BGP RRs. So thanks so much!!!!

I didn't really quite understand why your BGP session didn't reroute through R3 when your session between R2 and R4 went down. I figure since you peered to Loopbacks that session should have stayed active. Was it because you actually shut down the BGP session versus shutting down the interface?

Thanks Metha

Hi Metha,

Last thing. Any chance we can get the configs wanted to model this in VIRL without all the hand jamming.

thanks again
