Unanswered Question

when I issue a neighbor shut command, then a no neighbor shut command, I can not find the neighbor statement in the running configuration.

Is the shut command intended to delete the neighbor statement?

I have IOS 12.4

The neighbor shut command should only shut the BGP session down between the 2 peers. It should not remove it from your config.


Have you checked for any bugs for your specific version.

I found it.

I was entering a "neighbor x.x.x.x remote-as {AS} shut" instead of "neighbor x.x.x.x shut".

So apparently, I was shutting down all neighbors of that AS.
