• Define the RD and RT format.
• Define the PE-CE link addressing.

• Define the rules for using RD and RT in VRFs.

Q2. When provisioning the VRFs, what are the two main items that must be configured?

Answer: The route distinguisher (RD) and the route target (RT) import/export policies.

Q3. When provisioning the VRFs, is it necessary to have the same values for the RD and RT?

Answer: No. Although both values can be the same, there is no requirement because they are completely independent entities.

4: When allocating RT and RD values, what should you use as the first part of the value?

Answer: The service provider’s AS number.
