EVN & VRF Questions

August 24th, 2015 in ROUTE 300-101 Go to comments

Quick review:

Easy Virtual Network (EVN) is an IP-based network virtualization solution that helps enable network administrators to provide traffic separation and path isolation on a shared network infrastructure. EVN uses existing Virtual Route Forwarding (VRF)-Lite technology to:
+ Simplify Layer 3 network virtualization
+ Improve shared services support
+ Enhance management, troubleshooting, and usability

Question 1


All the subinterfaces and associated EVNs have the same IP address assigned. In other words, a trunk interface is identified by the same IP address in different EVN contexts. EVN automatically generates subinterfaces for each EVN. For example, both Blue and Green VPN Routing and Forwarding (VRF) use the same IP address of on their trunk interface:

vrf definition Blue
vnet tag 100
vrf definition Green
vnet tag 200
interface gigabitethernet0/0/0
vnet trunk
ip address

-> A is correct.

In fact answer B & C are not correct because each EVN has separate routing table and forwarding table.

Note: The combination of the VPN IP routing table and the associated VPN IP forwarding table is called a VPN routing and forwarding (VRF) instance.

Question 2


EVN is supported on any interface that supports 802.1q encapsulation, for example, an Ethernet interface. Instead of adding a new field to carry the VNET tag in a packet, the VLAN ID field in 802.1q is repurposed to carry a VNET tag. The VNET tag uses the same position in the packet as a VLAN ID. On a trunk interface, the packet gets re-encapsulated with a VNET tag. Untagged packets carrying the VLAN ID are not EVN packets and could be transported over the same trunk interfaces.

Reference: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/ios-nx-os-software/layer-3-vpns-l3vpn/whitepaper_c11-638769.html

Question 3


An example of using “autonomous-system {autonomous-system-number}” command is shown below:

router eigrp 100
address-family ipv4 vrf Cust
autonomous-system 100
no auto-summary

This configuration is performed under the Provide Edge (PE) router to run EIGRP with a Customer Edge (CE) router. The “autonomous-system 100” command indicates that the EIGRP AS100 is running between PE & CE routers.

Question 4

Question 5

Question 6


EVN builds on the existing IP-based virtualization mechanism known as VRF-Lite. EVN provides enhancements in path isolation, simplified configuration and management, and improved shared service support

Reference: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios-xml/ios/evn/configuration/xe-3s/evn-xe-3s-book/evn-overview.html

Maybe the “improved shared services support” term here implies about the support of sharing between different VRFs (through route-target, MP-BGP)

Question 7


This question is not clear because we have to configure a static route pointing to the global routing table while it stated that “all interfaces are in the same VRF”. But we should understand both outside and inside interfaces want to ping the loopback interface.

Question 8


EVN supports IPv4, static routes, Open Shortest Path First version 2 (OSPFv2), and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) for unicast routing, and Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP) for IPv4 Multicast routing. EVN also supports Cisco Express Forwarding (CEF) and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Reference: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios-xml/ios/evn/configuration/xe-3s/evn-xe-3s-book/evn-overview.html

Question 9


Route-target is is tagged to each VPN when it is exported. In other words, when a prefix is exported with a route-target, an extended BGP community is attached to that prefix. If this community is matched with the (import) route-target of the receiving side then the prefix is imported to the receiving VRF.

    What are the other two correct characteristics that are shared by subinterfaces and associated EVNs since the explanation is saying B&C are not correct?

  7. Anonymous
    April 8th, 2015

    the other two correct characteristics that are shared by subinterfaces and associated EVNs is the
    D. access control lists
    E. NetFlow configuration

  8. Run
    April 12th, 2015

    I think Q1 is correct, since the purpose of EVN is to remove the management overhead of a bunch of configuration on each sub interface dedicated to each VRF being created. Once you configure an EVN trunk between two routers they are sharing both the IP, RIB and FIB of that physical interface.(Sharing one IP, RIB, and FIB on each VRF instance but separated by tagging). :)

    I passed 300-101 yesterday with 1000. I had Q1 in my exam, and just so you know A B C is the answer :)

  10. Musa
    May 11th, 2015

    Q1 is ABC, see the explanation below:

    A trunk interface can carry traffic for multiple EVNs. To simplify the configuration process, all the subinterfaces and associated EVNs have the same IP address assigned. In other words, the trunk interface is identified by the same IP address in different EVN contexts. This is accomplished as a result of each EVN having a unique routing and forwarding table, thereby enabling support for overlapping IP addresses across multiple EVNs.

    Hi all,
    I am planning do my CCNP route exam on coming Saturday any one please update me for exam purpose is it enough to work out the 301-101 questions from digitault?

    “Single IP Address on Trunk Interface

    A trunk interface can carry traffic for multiple EVNs. To simplify the configuration process, all the subinterfaces and associated EVNs have the same IP address assigned. In other words, the trunk interface is identified by the same IP address in different EVN contexts. This is accomplished as a result of each EVN having a unique routing and forwarding table, thereby enabling support for overlapping IP addresses across multiple EVNs.”

    A. Definitely Correct
    B. Not correct
    C. Not correct
    D. ???
    E ???

    Digitaltut did you have the old exam question also? I mean the exam befor 300-101

  15. gsandorx
    August 10th, 2015

    I believe Q1 –> ABC

    According to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios-xml/ios/evn/configuration/xe-3sg/evn-overview.pdf , EVN trunk interfaces (where “subinterfaces” live) don’t support ACL, Netflow.

    I guess this question is asking about a conceptual view of things/features/characteristics shared by sub-interfaces and not whether they use the same IP routing table or same FIB. It’s more like:

    Which three characteristics are shared by human beings?

    1) brain
    2) hands
    3) heart
    4) wings
    5) fins

    Answer: 1, 2, 3

    .. but that doesn’t mean that we all use the same brain or hands or heart.

  17. MZ
    August 15th, 2015

    Q1 – I agree with gsandorx. The question meaning is probably “Which three characteristics ‘can be’ used by subinterfaces… “, not “Which three characteristics ‘are shared’ by subinterfaces… ” as in original question that is ambiguous.

    Spelunker, did you get a crisp answer about getting to the Questions? Not just the “explanations”? Anyone? bridgetedwards@msn.com

    I have a file of the delta questions between 82 and 116, if anyone needs those.

  20. testteaker

    My take on Q1
    The following are not supported on an EVN trunk:

    access control lists (ACLs)

    BGP interface commands are not inherited

    IPv6 (except that IPv6 is supported on vnet global)




    SO it has to be A,B and C

  21. Anand
    October 23rd, 2015

    The Answer is “A” only

    And here is why-

    Cant be “B” and “C” because
    “each with their own logical network and unique routing and forwarding tables.”

    Cant be “D” and “E” because
    Netflow and ACLs not supported by EVNs

    source for both the reasons-


  22. Anand
    October 23rd, 2015

    Correction to above submission @ Anand – October 23rd, 2015

    The Answer is A ofcourse and B and C as well because.
    “each with their own logical network and unique routing and forwarding tables.” but if you want you can have them share RIB & FIB like youy do in VRF for route replication

    So its A, B and C

    @digitaltut – please correct this in your answers

    Regarding question #1:

    Refer to this cisco documentation:

    which states explicitly:

    The following are not supported on an EVN trunk:
    Access control lists (ACLs) <—–
    BGP interface commands are not inherited
    IPv6, except on vnet global
    Network address translation (NAT)
    NetFlow <—-
    Web Cache Communication Protocol (WCCP)

    Hello Guys,

    I have found myself learning for the ccnp route again. Apart from learning the actual exam I would like to point out that Chris Bryant does an excellent course with all the information needed.

    So do any of you use his material or people only looking for a quick pass on the exam these days?

    I went for the official course, hands on instructor, few months back. EVN/VRF were not even in the syllabus!!!

    Who has sat for the route exam in February 2016, are all materials in this forum up to date?

  30. Jonny
    July 26th, 2016

    I guess question 1 is asking about the characteristic/features shared.
    So it does not means that the physical routing/forwarding table share.

    Think the person who set this question want to test on the trunk interface, which was indirectly mentioned with sub-interfaces and inheritance? (my guess)

    Anyway this is what I think and I am still pursuing my CCNP :P

  33. NP`
    September 1st, 2016

    Q1 D, E – ACL and Netflow are not supported by EVN trunk, so also not supported by subinterface, then not supported status is shared from trunk to subinterfaces :-)

    Guys, I failed today with a 640. The ‘300-101: Implementing Cisco IP Routing’ exam is completely different then what is on this site. Not even close. There are maybe 10 questions that are the same… What happened???

    I passed the written exam by scoring 90%. Most of the questions are from the http://www.testmayor.com dumps, though the sequences of choices are changed, so it is better to understand the concepts beforehand and go through the dumps so that you will not be surprised in the exam.

    Just took the 300-101 816/1000 used nothing but 149q and Tagwa 49. So here is what I saw on the test, but didn’t see in either of those study guides.

    1. IP SLA configuration and general knowledge
    2. Several PPPoE questions
    3. Numerous queries about NAT (time-range)

    Bottom line: If you have a clue plus know digitaltut, 149q and Tagwa 49 you will Pass!

    Good Luck Gents

    Anyone know the answer to q1 for certain? At this URL, it notes that Netflow and ACLs are not supported on an EVN trunk. So that leaves us with answers A, B, and C. However, the answer given say taht answer B and C aren’t correct. So, wtf???
