It would be a bad idea to use IOS for a route server: it is not rfc7947
compliant (i.e. cannot perform route server functionality properly) and
it's troublesome to script properly.

If you want a route server, by far your best option would be to follow
the instructions for deploying BIRD from the IXP Manager documentation.
 This is a supported configuration which people will be able to help you
with.  Cisco IOS is not supported and you'll be on your own.
