Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • state=absent removes the whole BGP ASN configuration when vrf=default or the whole VRF instance within the BGP process when using a different VRF.

  • Default when supported restores params default value.

  • Configuring global params is only permitted if vrf=default.
