Creates an MSDP mesh-group.
|mesh-group-name||Specifies the name for the MSDP mesh-group.|
|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.|
SA messages received from a peer in a mesh-group are not forwarded to other peers in the same mesh-group, which reduces SA message flooding.
A mesh group name must begin with an alphabetical character and may contain alphanumeric characters and underscores ( _ ), but it cannot contain spaces. The maximum allowed length for a name is 32 characters. For name creation guidelines and a list of reserved names, see Object Names in the Switch Engine 32.3 User Guide .
The following example creates a mesh-group called "verizon:":
create msdp mesh-group verizon
