Cisco VXLAN troubleshooting

ERROR after you configure EVPN

No VLAN id configured, unable to generate auto RD

This is because your NVE interface is down. Shutdown your NVE loopback and NVE interface, then unshut your loopback followed by NVE interface.

Border leaf receiving advertisement from external router and advertising to spine. Spine not advertising to other leafs. After review of the bgp l2vpn evpn routing table, its indicates “Path type: internal, path is invalid(no RMAC or L3VNI), no labeled nexthop”.

Why is this happening? Well because you don’t have the L3VNI configured properly. On the Border Leaf, verify that you have the L3VNI VLAN defined, the vni assigned to the VLAN and the interface VLAN defined with vrf and ip forward.
