Since the Type-1/EAD (Ethernet Auto Discovery) routes are to be advertised in the following two ways as per RFC 7432:

  1. Ethernet Auto Discovery per Ethernet Segment (EAD-per-ES) routes
  2. Ethernet Auto Discovery per EVPN Instance (EAD-per-EVI) routes

Some implementations of EVPN don’t advertise EAD-per-EVI routes so to be compatible with these vendors; we need to manually disable advertisement of EAD-per-EVI routes. To suppress the advertisement of EAD-per-EVI routes, run the command set protocols bgp evpn disable-ead-evi-tx.  Optional parameter vrf can be used to identify a specific VRF for this command to take effect on. 

To delete this configuration, run the command delete protocols bgp evpn disable-ead-evi-tx.

Command Syntax

set protocols bgp [vrf <vrf-name>] evpn disable-ead-evi-tx

delete protocols bgp [vrf <vrf-name>] evpn disable-ead-evi-tx




vrf <vrf-name>

Optional. Specifies the name of the VRF. The value is a string.


  • Configure the device to disable EVPN advertisement of EAD-per-EVI routes in VRF BLUE.
