disable bgp peer-group originate-default

disable bgp {peer-group} peer-group-name {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast |ipv6-unicast | ipv6-multicast]} originate-default


Removes default routes to all BGP neighbors in the specified peer group.

Syntax Description

peer-group-name Specifies the BGP peer group for which the default routes are removed.
address-family Specifies an IPv4 or IPv6 unicast or multicast address family.


Disabled. BGP does not automatically originate and advertise default routes to BGP neighbors.

Usage Guidelines

This command can be successfully executed at any time, irrespective of whether local BGP or the remote BGP peers are enabled or disabled.

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 removes default routes for IPv4 unicast traffic for all nodes in the test BGP peer group:

disable bgp peer-group test originate-default


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.2.2.

Support for IPv6 was added in ExtremeXOS 12.6 BGP.

Platform Availability

This command is available on platforms that support the appropriate license.
