This command applies to IPv6 unicast routes only.

Use the set form of this command to enable soft reconfiguration.

When this command is issued, the router begins storing routing updates, which can be used subsequently for inbound soft reconfiguration. Outbound BGP soft reconfiguration can be performed without enabling inbound soft reconfiguration.

The soft-reconfiguration command helps conserve memory utilization because you request for a route-refresh from a peer and update the routing table only when there is a change in the network.

Use the delete form of this command to disable soft reconfiguration.

Use the show form of this command to view BGP neighbor configuration settings.
