create msdp peer

create msdp peer remoteaddr {remote-as remote-AS} {vr vrname}


Creates an MSDP peer.

Syntax Description

remoteaddr Specifies the IP address of the MSDP router to configure as an MSDP peer.
remote-AS Specifies the autonomous system (AS) number of the MSDP peer. This optional parameter is deprecated in ExtremeXOS 12.1, though the option is still available in the CLI for backward compatibility. The software ignores this parameter.
vrname Specifies the name of the virtual router to which this command applies. If a name is not specified, it is extracted from the current CLI context.



Usage Guidelines

The BGP route database is used by MSDP to determine the AS number for the peer. You can display the AS number (which can be a 2-byte for 4-byte AS number) using the command:

show msdp [peer {detail} | {peer} remoteaddr] {vrvrname}.


The following example creates an MSDP peer:

create msdp peer remote-as 65001


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.0.
