network bgp peer-group modify

Modify a BGP peer group

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


The network bgp peer-group modify command is used to modify a border gateway protocol (BGP) peer group configuration.


-ipspace <IPspace> - IPspace Name
This parameter specifies the IPspace of the peer group being modified.
-peer-group <text> - Peer Group Name
This parameter specifies the name of the peer group being modified.
[-peer-address <IP Address>] - Peer Router Address
This parameter specifies an updated value for the IP address of the peer router.
[-use-peer-as-next-hop {true|false}] - Use Peer Address As Next Hop
This parameter specifies whether the peer group uses the peer address as a next hop route. When the value is true, the peer address is used as the next hop router for packets sent from VIP LIFs via the port on which bgp-lif is configured. Internally, a default route with a gateway configured as the peer-address is added automatically on the node for all the Vservers in this peer group's IPspace. The route will be added for a Vserver only if it has a VIP LIF hosted on the current node of bgp-lif. Note that these automatically installed default routes are for VIP traffic; however, they can be used for non-VIP traffic as well if a Vserver hosts both VIP and non-VIP LIFs in the same subnet as bgp-lif. This route will have metric of 20 and will be used to forward traffic through the current port of bgp-lif. The default value of this parameter is false.
