Use the CLI to verify from the tier-0 service router that a BGP connection to a neighbor is established.
Verify that BGP is configured. See Configure BGP on a Tier-0 Logical Router.
- Log in to the NSX Manager CLI.
- On the NSX Edge, run the get logical-routers command to find the VRF number of the tier-0 service router.
nsx-edge-1> get logical-routers Logical Router UUID : 736a80e3-23f6-5a2d-81d6-bbefb2786666 vrf : 0 type : TUNNEL Logical Router UUID : 421a2d0d-f423-46f1-93a1-2f9e366176c8 vrf : 5 type : SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER0 Logical Router UUID : f3ce9d7d-7123-47d6-aba6-45cf1388ca7b vrf : 6 type : DISTRIBUTED_ROUTER Logical Router UUID : c8e64eff-02b2-4462-94ff-89f3788f1a61 vrf : 7 type : SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER1 Logical Router UUID : fb6c3f1f-599f-4421-af8a-99692dff3dd4 vrf : 8 type : DISTRIBUTED_ROUTER
- Run the vrf <number> command to enter the tier-0 service router context.
nsx-edge-1> vrf 5 nsx-edge1(tier0_sr)>
- Verify that the BGP state is Established, up.
