["no activate" ipv6 neighbor under ipv4 address-family]

Hi!

 

Is it normal for a BGP ipv6 neighbor to appear under ipv4 address-family as "no activate"?

 

For example:

(I removed many commands for brevity, but that's a real config)

 

router bgp AAAAAA

neighbor X:X:X::X remote-as AAAAAA
neighbor X:X:X::X description BBBBBBB
neighbor X:X:X::X password CCCCCC
neighbor X:X:X::X update-source Loopback0

[snip]

address-family ipv4

no neighbor X:X:X::X activate <---appeared by itself

[snip]

address-family ipv6
neighbor X:X:X::X activate

 

Maybe it is OK, just haven't ran across this before.

Thanks!

Yes, this is normal behavior. The previous behavior in IOS was to activate address-family ipv4 for all neighbors, including the ipv6 neighbor. This behavior was changed a couple of years back to configure an explicit "no neighbor activate" for ipv6 neighbor", therefore if you ever need to activate address-family ipv4 on an ipv6 neighbor (not recommended), you should explicitly configure it.

Thanks, Harold. I figured out how to fixed my problem by using the command ‘no bgp default ipv4-unicast.
