configure bgp export shutdown-priority

configure bgp export route_type {{address-family} address_family} shutdown-priority number


Configures the shutdown priority for IGP export.

Syntax Description

route_type Specifies the BGP export route type.
address-family Specifies an IPv4 or IPv6 unicast or multicast address family.
number Specifies the shutdown priority. The range is 0 - 65,535.


The default value is 2048.

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



You must specify an IPv6 address family for an IPv6 peer, because an IPv6 peer does not support the default IPv4 unicast address family. Similarly, if you specify an IPv4 peer and an address family in the command, an IPv4 address family must be specified.

Usage Guidelines

To export IPv6 protocols to BGP, you must specify an IPv6 address family.



This command is not currently supported, and is not recommended for use.

Higher priority values lower the chance of an IGP export to be automatically disabled in case BGP or the system goes to a low memory condition.



For this command to execute, the specified protocol must support the specified address family. For example, the command fails if you specify OSPF and the IPv6 unicast address family. You can specify blackhole, direct, static, and IS-IS routes with IPv4 or IPv6 address families.


The following command configures the shutdown priority of BGP exported OSPF routes to 1000:

configure bgp export ospf shutdown-priority 1000


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.

This command required a specific license in ExtremeXOS 11.1.

Support for IPv6 was added in ExtremeXOS 12.6 BGP.

Platform Availability

This command is available on platforms that support the appropriate license. For complete information about software licensing, including how to obtain and upgrade your license and which licenses support the BGP feature, see the ExtremeXOS and Switch Engine 31.7 Feature License Requirements document.
