EVN & VRF Questions

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.

Question 10


Easy Virtual Network (EVN) is an IP-based virtualization technology that provides end-to-end virtualization of two or more Layer-3 networks. You can use a single IP infrastructure to provide separate virtual networks whose traffic paths remain isolated from each other.

An EVN trunk interface connects VRF-aware routers together and provides the core with a means to transport traffic for multiple EVNs. Trunk interfaces carry tagged traffic. The tag is used to de-multiplex the packet into the corresponding EVN. A trunk interface has one subinterface for each EVN. The vnet trunk command is used to define an interface as an EVN trunk interface.

In other words, EVN trunk interfaces allow multiple VRFs to use the same physical interfaces for transmission but the data of each VRF is treated separately. Without EVN trunk interfaces we need to create many subinterfaces. Therefore virtual network trunk (VNET) decreases the network configuration required.

Note: There is no “Easy Trunk” component or technology.

    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

    Can anyone explain Q7 I am confused.

    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 don’t see the questions anymore. what is going on?

    Can anyone verify Goofball’s comment? I have to re-certify my CCNP by the end of month.

    Everything you require to get ready and quickly pass the tough Cisco Certified Design Professional 300-101exam with 100% valid questions answers & pass guarantee in first attempt. http://www.grades4sure.com/300-101-exam-questions.html

    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 8xx/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???

    @ J where did you get Tagwa 49? It seems I can’t find it anywhere. I only have 41.

    Question number 1 seems to say the answer is A,B,C but then the explanation states that B&C are wrong and only A is correct when the question asks us to pick 3. Plus the (?) threw me.

    Q7 correct answers should be:

    – add the loopback to the vrf
    – add dynamic routing and advertise the loopback. //obviously for the vrf, but this is the closest to a correct answer and is implied by the “local OR REMOTE” statement

    The whole point of VRFs is isolation from the global routing table…Should you want to-for whatever reason-create static routes those should be created both in the global routing table AND in the vrf table.

    Hi E.T.,

    I agree with you. But ‘adding a static route for the VRF that points to the loopback interface’ on R2 would be easier and quicker. I think.

  26. dapo
    August 26th, 2017

    Hi E.T. and all,

    After 2nd thought, I think the ‘static route’ statement’s wording is not right. To use a static route, the wording should be ‘adding a static route for the loopback interface, that points to the appropriate next hop IP address, for the VRF on R2’.

    lots of new questions. no new sim.. eigrp, ospf verification, redistribution sim, and pbr sim. three new drag and drop, memorize the whole answers here their answers are shortened.. good luck i am taking another exam next week and am trying to practice again here if not i will have to find another source..
