BGP local preference of 0

Hi All,

... i was just wondering.....

What happens if you were to set the local preference to 0 for routes learned from a BGP peer?

???

Re: BGP local preference of 0

Hello,

0 is just treated as any other configurable value, I guess it is there to make absolutely sure that the lowest value is configured, similiar to the ´spanning-tree vlan X priority 0´ command...

You are pobably thinking that 0 might somehow remove the specified route from any decision-making process, similar to the DR election in OSPF, where ´0´ would mean never to become a DR, but in BGP, the ´0´, as I said, is simply the lowest value...

HTH,
