RFC 7543, "Covering Prefixes Outbound Route Filter for BGP-4", May 2015

Source of RFC: bess (rtg)

Errata ID: 5258
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Section Section 5 says:

The UMR is characterized as follows:

   o  EVPN Route Type is equal to MAC/IP Advertisement Route

   o  MAC address length is equal to 0

   o  IP address length is equal to 0

It should say:

In Section 5:

The UMR is characterized as follows:

   o  EVPN Route Type is equal to MAC/IP Advertisement Route

   o  MAC address length is equal to 48

   o  IP address length is equal to 0

Notes:

The original text provides conflicting definitions of the MAC Address Length in the Unknown MAC Route (UMR).

Since the UMR is a MAC/IP Advertisement Route defined in RFC 7432, and since this RFC states that the MAC Address Length in these routes is 48, the text in Section 5 should be corrected to match RFC 7432 as well as the text in Section 1 of this RFC (where MAC Address Length in the UMR is correctly defined as 48).
