neighbor default-originate

Inject the default route to a BGP peer or neighbor.

neighbor {ip-address | peer-group-name} default-originate [route-map map-name]

To remove a default route, use the no neighbor {ip-address | peer-group-name} default-originate command.

(OPTIONAL) Enter the IP address of the neighbor in dotted decimal format.
Enter the name of the peer group to set the default route of all routers in that peer group.
route-map map-name

Usage Information
If you apply a route map to a BGP peer or neighbor with the neighbor default-originate command configured, the software does not apply the set filters in the route map to that BGP peer or neighbor.

When you configure a route-map for a BGP peer or peer group with the neighbor default-originate command, the command checks for the existence of the route in BGP RIB.

Route-map configuration on a BGP peer or peer group works only when the LOC-RIB contains at least one route.

When you apply a default route to a BGP peer or peer group using the neighbor default-originate command, changes to the configured default route-map are applied to the BGP peer or peer group only after a delay of 15 seconds. As a result, you must wait for a period of 15 seconds before manually resetting BGP using the clear ip bgp command.

In case of eBGP, the neighbor default-originate command does not support extended-community as a non-transtive route-map attribute.

You cannot set this configuration for a peer that is associated with a peer group. Similarly, you cannot associate a peer to a peer group if that peer is already configured with these settings.

In order that settings corresponding to the neighbor default-originate command take effect, you must execute the clear ip bgp command immediately after you execute the neighbor default-originate command.
