Advertising an Aggregate Route

Hi,
 
   This is a simple advertisement of an aggregate route between two routers. Router3 is advertising the aggregate via BGP to Router2. I see that Router2 is receiving the route from Router3 but it's hidden it. When I check why it states that it's "looped". However, I don't see how that can be looped if the AS that Router3 is using is 3333 and the AS the Router2 is using is 2222. Can you guys please check what mistake you see? Thank you


Router2 Output:
 
root# ...ve-protocol bgp 10.1.23.2 table Router2.inet.0 hidden
Router2.inet.0: 5 destinations, 5 routes (4 active, 0 holddown, 1 hidden)

Can you attach the full routing tables?

I see you have an additional LT interface, so possibly there are actually "old garbage" left from other exercises...

Thank you for your help. But I found the issue. The issue is that since I am using Virtual Instance within a single physical device that router is seeing it's own AS_PATH within the AS_PATH list. To correct it one has to use the "loops" command to allow loops when you are configuring EBGP within a Virtual Instance within a single device.

You should have been able to just configure the AS under routing-options, under each routing-instance. With a different AS for each routing-instance.

Even better is to use an MX and logical-system instead of routing-instance...

This corrected my issue and I was able to see the hidden route in BGP.
