Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Description

Define an MSDP peering relationship. An MSDP router must know which routers are its peers. You define the peer relationships explicitly by configuring the neighboring routers that are the MSDP peers of the local router. After peer relationships are established, the MSDP peers exchange messages to advertise active multicast sources. To configure multiple MSDP peers, include multiple peer statements.

By default, the peer's options are identical to the global or group-level MSDP options. To override the global or group-level options, include peer-specific options within the peer statement.

At least one peer must be configured for MSDP to function. You must configure address and local-address.

Options

address—Name of the MSDP peer.

The remaining statements are explained separately.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.

routing-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
