Re: bgp router-id question

Hi julxu,

You should always use a loopback interface (logical interface) to be your router id not a physical interface.  So make sure you have a loopback interface with IP address assign to it.  Then that will become your router ID and if you change any Physical interface BGP will not be effected.

Hi Julxu,

Changing your router-id will be effective after you reset your BGP connections and the best practice recommends that RID with the "bgp router-id" command and that this address be associated with a loopback interface address.

Hope to Help !!
