    EIGRP OTP and poison reverse

    Hi all,

    I need some help with an EIGRP poison reverse issue. I've setup an EIGRP OTP lab config using the INE lab topology. The lab simulates 4 x sites connected to an mpls core. One of those sites acts as EIGRP RR for OTP.

    The problem I have is, even though my OTP RR has split-horizon disabled, my spokes are receiving some advertisements from the RR with an infinite metric, so they're never making it into the topology table or RIB. Others are being learnt correctly.

    Can anyone explain why?


    More info:

    Site A: PE is R5, CE is R8, behind R8 is R10

    Site B: PE is R3, CE is R7, behind R7 is R9

    Site C: PE is R2, CE is R11, behind R11 is R12

    Site D: PE is R1, CE is R6, also acting as OTP RR.


    Sites A/B/C form a LISP tunnel back to R6, EIGRP neighbours appear, loopbacks for R9/R10/R12 are learnt, however, connected transit LAN and local LAN segments such as and are not being learnt. I have no other routing protocol running on the CE's, no loops that I can see, no SIA routes. 


    R7 EIGRP logs indicate:


    R7#show ip eigrp events  | inc

    422  15:00:23.434 Ignored route, inaccessible: metric(Infinity) 

    455  15:00:19.794 NDB delete: 1

    The odd thing is, R7 (CE) learns R10's loopback, but not its LAN segment:


    R7#show ip route

    Someone please help!
