Here is the setup: - We have two routers R1 and R2 in two distant locations and in the same AS0. - AS0 is connected to AS1 via both R1 and R2 receive some AS1 route (one and the same prefix) from both sessions - R1 and R2 have iBGP session with no filters
The goal: - We want to force R1 to choose its locally received route towards AS1 - We want to force R2 to also choose its locally received route towards AS1
Question: With a single router in the network we force preference using the local-preference attribute. Can we also use the local-preference in the above described setup?
