network bgp peer-group create

Create a new BGP peer group

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The network bgp peer-group create command is used to create a border gateway protocol (BGP) peer group. A BGP peer group will advertise VIP routes for the list of vservers in the peer group's vserver-list using the BGP LIF of the peer group. A BGP peer group will advertise VIP routes to a peer router using the border gateway protocol. The address of the peer router is identfied by the peer-address value.

Parameters

-ipspace <IPspace> - IPspace Name
This parameter specifies the IPspace of the peer group being created.
-peer-group <text> - Peer Group Name
This parameter specifies the name of the peer group being created.
-bgp-lif <lif-name> - BGP LIF
This parameter specifies the BGP interface (BGP LIF) of the peer group being created.
-peer-address <IP Address> - Peer Router Address
This parameter specifies the IP address of the peer router for the peer group being created.
[-peer-asn <integer>] - Peer Router Autonomous number
This parameter specifies the peer router autonomous system number (ASN) in the peer group being created. The default value is the value of the local node's ASN.
-route-preference <integer> - Route Preference
This parameter specifies the preference field in BGP update messages for VIP routes. If a router receives multiple VIP route announcements for the same VIP LIF from different BGP LIFs, it will install the one that has the highest preference value. The default route preference value is 100.
