Hi Peter, All,

I'm am trying to clarify a potential inconsistency between RFC7794 and draft-ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions.

draft-ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions says that we should advertise identical prefix-attribute tlv for the ipv6 reachability tlv and for the locator tlv.

RFC7794 document says that we should not set the X flag in case of ipv6 routes because the ipv6 reachability tlv already has an external indication.

Can you advise.


  1.  draft-ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions



The Prefix Attribute Flags Sub-TLV can be carried in the SRv6 Locator

   TLV as well as the Prefix Reachability TLVs.  When a router

   originates both the Prefix Reachability TLV and the SRv6 Locator TLV

   for a given prefix, and the router is originating the Prefix

   Attribute Flags Sub-TLV in one of the TLVs, the router SHOULD

   advertise identical versions of the Prefix Attribute Flags Sub-TLV in

   both TLVs.




  1.  RFC7794


Prefix Attribute Flags

     Type:   4

     Length: Number of octets of the Value field.

     Value:



          (Length * 8) bits.



       0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7...

      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+...

      |X|R|N|          ...

      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+...



   Bits are defined/sent starting with Bit 0 defined below.  Additional

   bit definitions that may be defined in the future SHOULD be assigned

   in ascending bit order so as to minimize the number of bits that will

   need to be transmitted.



   Undefined bits MUST be transmitted as 0 and MUST be ignored on

   receipt.



   Bits that are NOT transmitted MUST be treated as if they are set to 0

   on receipt.



   X-Flag:  External Prefix Flag (Bit 0)

      Set if the prefix has been redistributed from another protocol.

      This includes the case where multiple virtual routers are

      supported and the source of the redistributed prefix is another

      IS-IS instance.



      The flag MUST be preserved when leaked between levels.



      In TLVs 236 and 237, this flag SHOULD always be sent as 0 and MUST

      be ignored on receipt.  This is because there is an existing X

      flag defined in the fixed format of these TLVs as specified in

      [RFC5308<https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5308>] and [RFC5120<https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5120>]0>].
