MPLS VPN Partioned RR Design with ORF using extcommunity !

Dear All


I am trying to test the use of ORF with extcommunity using "bgp rr-group" to make the PEs not advertise any routes with extcommunity which are not allowed on the RR using " bgp rr-group" command..


I can see on the RR that I am only placing the routes which are permitted under the extcommunity list allowed under "bgp rr-group" config but the PEs are still advertising all the routes and ORF is not working ..Below are my configs


 address-family vpnv4

  bgp rr-group 10

  neighbor mp-ibgp send-community extended

  neighbor mp-ibgp route-reflector-client

  neighbor mp-ibgp capability orf prefix-list send

  neighbor mp-ibgp route-map cus1 in

  neighbor activate

  neighbor activate



ip extcommunity-list 10 permit rt 64513:100





route-map cus1 permit 10

 match extcommunity 10


I am not sure how can I make the RR advertise the set of RTs it is permitting to the PEs so that they can stop advertising the unwanted routes..

I can see on the PE though for ORF capability received but it says for Prefix-List and not extcommunity
