    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.


    • ipAddress—IP address of BGP neighbor
    • ipv6Address—IPv6 address of BGP neighbor
    • peerGroupName—Name of a BGP peer group. If you specify a BGP peer group by using the peerGroupName argument, all the members of the peer group inherit the characteristic configured with this command, unless it is overridden for a specific peer.
