Section 11.2 says:
11.2. P-Tunnel Identification "...+ If the PE that originates the advertisement uses ingress replication for the P-tunnel for EVPN, the route MUST include the PMSI Tunnel attribute with the Tunnel Type set to Ingress Replication and the Tunnel Identifier set to a routable address of the PE."
It should say:
a routable address of the PE is not so strict. And does this mean we use the Tunnel Identifier to construct P2P tunnel for ingress replication, or we use the Originating Router's IP Address in the IMET route key, or they are equivalent meaning? This may cause interact problems when it implements differently. Could you clarify this? Thanks.
