What does this mean?

Re: bgp neighbor stuck in active

There could be a number of reasons for this. The following document details those reasons quite well:

You have provided an interesting link about problems with BGP neighbor relationships. But the original post asked about "neighbor stuck in active" and that is not a concept that I recognize in BGP. The only protocol I know that has neighbor stuck in active is EIGRP.

In EIGRP stuck in active means that some router has lost a route and has transitioned to the active state for that prefix. The router has sent query requests for routes to that prefix and some neighbor has failed to respond within a time limit imposed by EIGRP.

Re: bgp neighbor stuck in active

Hi Rick,

I don't believe the original poster was referring to the Stuck-in-Active (SIA) condition which manifests itself in EIGRP. I took that to mean that a BGP neighbor was staying in a BGP Active state...

But we probably need the original poster to clarify :-)

Thanks anyway,

Paresh

I quite agree that the original question was not entirely clear and that we need the original poster to clarify.
