Has anyone looked into IOS XR behaviour, if it's the same as 12.0(32)S12?


Pierfrancesco Caci was kind enough to provide me with some output from an XR
box. It appears that IOS XR behaves in the same manner as Force10, and JunOS,
whereby the session is not torn down, and the path is installed, albeit with a
munged AS_PATH. The output below is for the prefix from 196629 which we
originally analysed:

Path #1: Received by speaker 0
   3356 35320 3.21 23456

Given that XR box is an AS4-speaker, one would not expect to see 23456 in the
AS_PATH, the prescence of this AS seems to be a symptom of the bug (and again
occurs on Juniper/Force10).

Kind regards,
