disable bgp peer-group soft-in-reset

disable bgp peer-group peer-group-name {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast |ipv6-unicast | ipv6-multicast]} soft-in-reset


Disables the soft input reset feature.

Syntax Description

peer-group-name Specifies a peer group.
address-family Specifies an IPv4 or IPv6 unicast or multicast address family.



If no address family is specified, IPv4 unicast is the default.

Usage Guidelines

Disabling the soft input reset feature can potentially limit the amount of system memory consumed by the RIB-in.

After you enter this command, the switch automatically disables and enables all neighbors in the peer group before the change takes effect.

This command applies to the current VR or VRF context.

If you do not specify an address family, this command applies to the IPv4 unicast address family. To apply this command to an address family other than the IPv4 unicast address family, you must specify the address family.



If the specified peer group contains IPv6 peers, it is an IPv6 peer group and you must specify an IPv6 address-family. When the specified peer group is an IPv6 peer group, this command fails if no address family is specified or if an IPv4 address-family is specified. This command also fails if an IPv6 address family is specified for an IPv4 peer-group.


The following command disables the soft input reset feature:

disable bgp peer-group outer soft-in-reset
