The universal distributed logical router (UDLR) must establish a connection to Edge Services Gateway before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that the UDLR is successfully peering, and that BGP routing has been established.


  1. Log in to the UDLR by using a Secure Shell (SSH) client.
    1. Open an SSH connection to sfo01w01udlr01.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name admin
      Password udlr_admin_password
  2. Run the show ip bgp neighbors command to display information about the BGP and TCP connections to neighbors. 
    The BGP State shows  Established, UP if you have successfully peered with the Edge Service Gateway.

  3. Run the show ip route command to verify that you are receiving routes using BGP, and that there are multiple routes to BGP learned networks.
    You verify multiple routes to BGP learned networks by locating the same route using a different IP address. The IP addresses are listed after the word  via in the right-side column of the routing table output. In the following image there are two different routes to the following BGP networks:, and You can identify BGP networks by the letter  B in the left-side column. Lines beginning with  C (connected) have only a single route.
