Use the set form of this command to administratively shut down a BGP neighbor.

Shutting down a BGP speaker administratively terminates any active sessions for the neighbor and removes any associated routing information. If the neighbor is a peer group, this could terminate a large number of sessions.

To determine whether a BGP neighbor has been administratively shut down, you can view BGP summary information. A neighbor with a status of Idle with a comment of Admin has been administratively shut down.

Use the delete form of this command to administratively re-enable a BGP neighbor.

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