MSDP peer problem

Unanswered Question
Jan 16th, 2008

Dear all

I have an MSDP session sourced from a local loopback address, MSDP session is up but the actual loopback is not even configured with an IP Address.

debug msdp peer shows session as up with peering partner. I expected to see the session as down.

can anyone shed some light ?



ip msdp peer connect-source Loopback2 remote-as 65001


interface Loopback2

no ip address

ip pim sparse-dense-mode



MSDP Peer , AS 65001 (configured AS)

Connection status:

State: Up, Resets: 24, Connection source: Loopback2 (

Uptime(Downtime): 2d14h, Messages sent/received: 3750/22162

Output messages discarded: 0

Connection and counters cleared 46w2d ago

I have this problem too.

Verify any default peer command is enabled in your device. It may be the one of the reason
