disable-notification-flag (BGP Graceful Restart)


Hierarchy Level


Disables the transmission of the notification (N) flag in the graceful restart capability negotiation. The BGP protocol sends a notification NOTIFICATION message and reset the peering session to handle the error condition. BGP graceful restart that permits the operational procedures to be performed when the BGP speaker receives a notification message. This behavior permits the BGP speaker to avoid flapping reachability and continue forwarding while the BGP speaker restarts the session to handle errors detected in the BGP protocol. You can define this setting at the [edit protocols bgp graceful-restart], [edit protocols bgp group group-name graceful-restart], or [edit protocols bgp group group-name neighbor neighbor-address graceful-restart] hierarchy level.

Disables the transmission of the N flag in the graceful restart capability negotiation, but in addition, it disables the new rules for invoking graceful restart receiver mode as specified in the IETF bgp-gr-notification draft, and disables the transmission of the Hard Reset subcode. The Hard Reset subcode is continued to be observed when received in a Notify or a Cease message.
