Release Information

Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.
ipv6Address variable added in JunosE Release 8.0.0.


Enables the BGP graceful restart capability for the peer or peer group, which enables BGP to maintain its forwarding state during a peer restart, avoiding network-wide route flaps and interruptions in traffic forwarding. Graceful restart is disabled by default. The no version disables the graceful restart capability. The default version removes the explicit configuration from the peer or peer group and reestablishes inheritance of the feature configuration.
