How to troubleshoot Private Peering connection issues?

Gerry Ultreras 20 Reputation points

I have provisioned an Express Route and a private peering which shows as provisioned and enabled. I added a gateway connection, but traffic doesn't reach my Azure network. The resource health reports an Unavailable (Unplanned) message. I suspect a BGP connection issue, but the documentation shows layer 3 is managed by my provider. How can I troubleshoot this issue?

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & I hope you are doing well.

    The basic troubleshooting steps are :

    • Firstly, please check the ARP status using ARP tables for private peering
      • Depending on the hardware platform, the ARP results may vary and only display the On-premises interface.
    • Then, if ARP is fine, check BGP. You can refer to this : Validate BGP and routes on the MSEE
      • And check if the BGP routes are being advertised properly between OnPrem and the Circuit.
    • Now, validate the VNET Gateway using Get-AzVirtualNetworkGatewayLearnedRoute
      • And make sure the VNET gateway is learning the route from circuit. (the origin type will be "EBgp" )
    • Additionally, you can also check if a VM in the VNET is learning the OnPrem route or not

    However, you confirmed there was a port down on your end.
