disable msdp export local-sa

disable msdp export local-sa {vr vrname}


Disables the advertisement of local sources to groups for which the router is an RP.

Syntax Description

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.


By default, the export of local sources is enabled. All sources are advertised if the router is an RP for the groups. Use this command to disable it.

Usage Guidelines

You can create a policy to filter out some of the local sources so that they are not advertised to MSDP peers and exposed to the external multicast domain. To configure an export filter, you must first disable the export of local sources (with the disable msdp export local-sa command), and then re-enable it with an export filter (with the enable msdp export local-sa export-filter command).


The following example disables the advertisement of local sources:

disable msdp export local-sa


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.0.
