Routing Protocols

  • Support for relaxing BGP router ID format from /32 to a nonzero ID per RFC 6286 ( MX204, NFX Series, PTX5000, QFX Series, and vRR)—Starting in Junos OS Release 20.4R1, you can establish a BGP connection using a BGP identifier that is a 4-octet, unsigned, nonzero integer and it needs to be unique only within the autonomous system (AS) per RFC 6286. In earlier releases, the BGP ID of a BGP speaker was required to be a valid IPv4 host address assigned to the BGP speaker.

    To enable this feature, use the bgp-identifier identifier group bgp group name bgp-identifier identifier neighbor peer address bgp-identifier identifier configuration statement at the [edit protocols bgp] hierarchy level.
