You can use route tags in redistribution scenarios to filter and/or manipulate routes.
I’m scheduled to take the CCIE R&S Written exam on 10 July at Cisco Live, and I’ve been asked by a handful of people on Twitter exactly what materials I’m using. I figured it would be a good idea to let everyone know so that we all can determine whether or not I’m on the right track. I may get to the exam and find out that the books I’ve been reading aren’t even close. It’s happened before.
A route must appear in the routing table via an IGP in order for that routes to be able to be voted ‘best” by BGP.
For God’s sake, do not lower the AD of EIGRP! Havoc will ensue.
Route reflectors remove the requirement of having a full mesh iBGP network.
BGP confederations remove the requirement of a full mesh iBGP setup as well as the need for BGP synchronization.
It’s simple as pie to enable MD5 auth to a BGP peer.

Corrections – I invite them.
This is required blogging…and reading for that matter. A good chunk of this is taken from my CCNP posts from last year. Corrections, please.
