neighbor lenient


[ no ] neighbor { ipAddress | ipv6Address | peerGroupName } lenient

Release Information

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


Enables lenient behavior to make the BGP speaker more tolerant of malformed packet and finite state machine errors generated by peer, so that the speaker can attempt recovery from the error and avoid bringing down the session. The no version disables lenient behavior; this is the default condition.
