Configures an RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm secret password for a neighbor.
|all||Specifies all IPv4 and IPv6 neighbors.|
|remoteaddr||Specifies the IPv4 or IPv6 address of a BGP neighbor.|
|none||Specifies not to use a password|
|encrypted||Specifies an encrypted string; do not use.|
|tcpPassword||Specifies a password string.|
This command applies to the current VR or VRF context.
You must disable the BGP neighbor before changing the password.
When a password is configured, TCP RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm authentication is enabled on the TCP connection that is established with the neighbor.
Changes made to the parameters of a peer group are applied to all neighbors in the peer group.
Changing a route reflector client automatically disables and enables the peer session.
The encrypted option is used by the switch when generating a configuration file, and when parsing a switch-generated configuration file. Do not select the encrypted option in the CLI.
The following command configures the password for a neighbor as Extreme:
configure bgp neighbor 192.168.1.5 password extreme
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
