BlackHole parameter ausency on "apply ip-address next-hop (Route-policy view)" command

Publication Date:  2018-02-13 Views:  62 Downloads:  0
Issue Description

Client need to create a route-policy to send packets from a specific origin to a blackhole. On HedEx we have this example:

<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] route-policy policy permit node 10
[*HUAWEI-route-policy] apply ip-address next-hop 193.1.1.8

To add a black-hole flag to a route, run the apply ip-address next-hop blackhole command.


But when you try to configure how to HedEx, the parameter blackhole is not present on version V800R009C10SPC200. We are using de same documentation version on HedEx.

Handling Process

To send packets to a blackhole wtihout use this paramenters, we use this configuration

<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] route-policy policy permit node 10
[*HUAWEI-route-policy] apply ip-address next-hop 192.0.2.1

[~HUAWEI] ip route-static 192.0.2.1 255.255.255.255 NULL0

We use a 192.0.2.0/24 IP Address because this is a reservated class to documentation according RFC5737. This IP don´t have any conflict with Internet addresses.

Suggestions

We suggest a change on HedEx documentation or a include of this parameter on next patch version.
