Re: Why can't I default Originate?
Well, the idea of peer-group is to.. as what the name sugests 'group' the peers into a single and simple configuration.. Default route origination to a peer although may be specific to a neighbor like in your situation, is still a configuration for peering neighbor; hence making it possible to be grouped into peer-group commands. But.. whether or not default-originate goes in seperate peer config or peer-group config I guess is debatable. In application for my network, I find default-originate feature under peer-group useful; as I originate default route to some aggregation switches in route-reflector client peer group. -hc -- Sincerely, Haesu C.

It shouldn't be this way since you may want to use the peer group as a template for multiple customers, but they may not all want 0/0 sent to them. > ALSO I didn't need to have 0/0 in my local routing table nor did I need to add the BGP command "Synchronization." > According to CISCO (which is actually accurate), it will originate default UNCONDITIONALLY, which it does. > I'm still concerned about applying the command to the peer vs. the peer group issue. > Sorry about having posted this to Nanog, I'll filter my future questions more carefully. > Thanks for everyone who answered! > > -=Vandy=- > > -----Original Message----- > From: Haesu [mailto:[email protected]] > Sent: Tuesday, July 08, 2003 2:04 PM > To: [email protected] > Subject: Re: Why can't I default Originate? > > > > After you applied default-originate to peer-group, have you done soft-clear of your bgp session? > > It usually takes a little while for changes in config to propagate, unless you force an update using soft clear... > > -hc > > -- > Sincerely, > Haesu C. > TowardEX Technologies, Inc. > WWW: http://www.towardex.com > E-mail: [email protected] > Cell: (978) 394-2867 > > On Tue, Jul 08, 2003 at 12:43:35PM -0700, Vandy Hamidi wrote: > > > > Platform: > > Cisco 7206VXR > > SW: > > Version 12.2(15)T2 > > > > router#sh run | b bgp > > router bgp 65011 > > no synchronization > > bgp log-neighbor-changes > > bgp confederation identifier 12345 > > bgp confederation peers 65001 65021 > > bgp deterministic-med > > bgp dampening > > network 126.96.36.199 mask 255.255.255.0 > > neighbor Confed-Peer-Group peer-group > > neighbor Confed-Peer-Group update-source FastEthernet1/1 > > neighbor Confed-Peer-Group next-hop-self > > neighbor Confed-Peer-Group version 4 > > neighbor Confed-Peer-Group soft-reconfiguration inbound > > neighbor Confed-Peer-Group filter-list 2 in > > neighbor Confed-Peer-Group filter-list 1 out > > neighbor 10.1.2.75 remote-as 65001 > > neighbor 10.1.2.75 peer-group Confed-Peer-Group > > neighbor 10.1.2.75 password 7 05211F2C105211F2C1666B > > neighbor 10.1.2.76 remote-as 65001 > > neighbor 10.1.2.76 peer-group Confed-Peer-Group > > neighbor 10.1.2.76 password 7 05211F2C105211F2C1666B > > no auto-summary > > > > > > router#conf t > > Enter configuration commands, one per line.
