[alcatel-nsp] 7750 Route Reflector Server Question

Thanks for the reply. That's not quite what I'm after.

In this case, I want to accomplish both on the same internal sessions to reflector clients. I want to set next hop self on routes learned from external peers and propagate to internal reflector clients. In the same internal sessions, I want leave the original IGP next-hop on internal routes reflected to the reflector clients.

You can implement this without a policy but by simply creating two bgp groups:

group internal
   type internal
group external
   peer-as 1234;

is this what you are looking for?

I’m using route reflection on 7750-SR (8.0R7) and want to set next hop self for routes learned from external BGP peers, but not on routes learned from internal BGP peers. The goal is to reflect routes from internal peers, preserving the IGP next hop while setting next hop self on routes from external peers. Perhaps this is the default behavior.

I can set all routes to next hop self in the 7750 Peer/Group configuration and with a policy. Since I don’t want all routes advertised internally by the 7750 to have the next hop self set, I’m assuming that it is accomplished in a policy.

Firstly, does anyone know if this is the default behavior? Or, if possible, how to accomplish this with SROS policy.

The Juniper policy equivalent is:

term external {
    from route-type external;
    then {
        next-hop self;
term internal {
    from route-type internal;
    then accept;


Policy nhs-ipv6:
    Term external:
        from route-type external
        then nexthop self accept
    Term internal:
        from route-type internal
        then accept
