Shutting Down a BGP Neighbor

This topic describes how to administratively shut down and re-enable a BGP neighbor.

BGP neighbor shutdown Command

Router(config-router)#

1

neighbor {ip-address | peer-group-name} shutdown

• Administratively brings down a BGP neighbor

• Used for maintenance and policy changes to prevent route flapping

Router(config-router)#

no neighbor {ip-address | peer-group-name} shutdown

• Re-enables a BGP neighbor that has been administratively shut down

Use the neighbor ip-address shutdown commands to administratively shut down and re-enable a BGP neighbor.

If you implement major policy changes to a neighboring router and you change multiple parameters, you must administratively shut down the neighboring router, implement the changes, and then bring the neighboring router back up with the no neighbor ip-address shutdown command.
