If Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is enabled on the HP FlexFabric Switch, the HP FlexFabric Switch must not be a BGP peer with a HP FlexFabric Switch from an Autonomous System belonging to any Alternate Gateway (AG).

The perimeter router will not use a routing protocol to advertise NIPRNet addresses to Alternate Gateways. Most ISPs use Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to share route information with other autonomous systems, that is, any network under a different administrative control and policy than a local site. If BGP is configured on the perimeter router, no BGP neighbors will be defined to peer routers from an AS belonging to any Alternate Gateway. The only allowable method is a static route to reach the Alternate Gateway.

Fix Text

Configure a static route on the perimeter HP FlexFabric Switch to reach the AS of a HP FlexFabric Switch connecting to an Alternate Gateway. [HP] ip route-static 16

Check Content

Review the configuration of the HP FlexFabric Switch connecting to the AG. Verify there are no BGP neighbors configured to the remote AS that belongs to the AG service provider. There should be no BGP peers displayed. If there are BGP neighbors configured that belong to the AG service provider, this is a finding.
