    BGP: % Specify remote-as or peer-group commands first

    108sagarh

      Hi Folks,

       

      I'm haunted by this error again and again, but still i do not know the root cause of this error: % Specify remote-as or peer-group commands first

       

      I'm just taking a example here and not the whole config as i just need to know the cause of the error.

       

      for example lets take a simple config statement as below:

       

      R3(config)#route-map SECONDARY_T1_IN permit 10

      R3(config-route-map)#set local-preference 150

       

      R3(config-route-map)#router bgp 64512

      R3(config-router)#neighbor 192.168.1.9 route-map SECONDARY_T1_IN in

      % Specify remote-as or peer-group commands first

       

      As per my knowledge:

      ---> this occurs when someone attempts to configure an invalid IP address as a BGP peer - after that you are unable to create any additional peers as you get the error message "*% Create the peer-group first".

       

      Does this error occurs if we do not config the cmd::

       

      R3(config-route-map)#router bgp 64512

      R3(config-router)#neighbor 192.168.1.9 remote-as <>

       

      Please ask more questions if you've, if not understood.

       

      Kind regards,

      Sagar
