Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1

Updated: October 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Add-BgpPeer

Adds a BGP peer to the current router.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Add0
Add-BgpPeer [-Name] <String> -LocalIPAddress <IPAddress> -PeerASN <UInt32> -PeerIPAddress <IPAddress> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-HoldTimeSec <UInt16> ] [-IdleHoldTimeSec <UInt16> ] [-LocalASN <UInt32> ] [-MaxAllowedPrefix <UInt32> ] [-OperationMode <OperationMode> ] [-PassThru] [-PeeringMode <PeeringMode> ] [-RoutingDomain <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Weight <UInt16> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-BgpPeer cmdlet adds a Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) peer to the current router. Specify the following values for the peer:

-- A name for the peer router
-- IP address that the router uses with the peer
-- Autonomous system number (ASN) for the peer router

You can also specify the following values:

-- ASN for the local router
-- Maximum number of network prefixes that the local router instance can learn from this peer
-- Preference assigned to routes received from this peer
-- Operation mode and peering mode
-- Hold time, in seconds

Exchange of route information begins when the peering session begins. If the peering mode is Automatic, the session begins when you add the peer. If you specify a value of Manual for the PeeringMode parameter, use the Start-BgpPeer cmdlet to start the peer session.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Examples

Example 1: Add a peer

This command adds a BGP peer, named TenantSite22, to the router. The command specifies the IP addresses for the router and the peer, and the peer ASN. The command selects the default value of Automatic for the peering mode. The command includes the PassThru parameter, so it passes the new object to the console.


PS C:\> Add-BgpPeer -Name "TenantSite22" -LocalIPAddress 192.168.1.10 -PeerASN 64512 -PeerIPAddress 10.1.1.10 -PassThru
PeerName            LocalIPAddress      PeerIPAddress       PeerASN             OperationMode       ConnectivityStatus
-------- -------------- ------------- ------- ------------- ------------------
TenantSite22 192.168.1.10 10.1.1.10 64512 Mixed Connecting

Example 2: Add a peer that uses manual peering mode

This command adds a BGP peer, named TenantSite24, to the router. The command specifies the IP addresses for the router and the peer, and the peer ASN. The command specifies the PeeringMode and OperationsMode parameters. Because the command specifies a value of Manual for the PeeringMode parameter, the router drops incoming connections until you start the peering. The command includes the PassThru parameter, so it passes the new object to the console.


PS C:\> Add-BgpPeer -Name "TenantSite23" -LocalIPAddress 192.168.1.10 -PeerASN 64512 -PeerIPAddress 10.1.1.10 -OperationMode Server -PassThru -PeeringMode Manual 
PeerName            LocalIPAddress      PeerIPAddress       PeerASN             OperationMode       ConnectivityStatus
-------- -------------- ------------- ------- ------------- ------------------
TenantSite24 192.168.1.10 10.1.1.10 64512 Server Stopped

Example 3: Add a peer and specify a routing domain

This command adds a BGP peer, named Tenant19, to the router. The command specifies the IP addresses for the router and the peer, and the peer ASN. The command also specifies the routing domain as RD001. The command includes the PassThru parameter, so it passes the new object to the console.


PS C:\> Add-BgpPeer -Name "Tenant19" -LocalIPAddress 10.1.1.10 -PeerASN 64513 -PeerIPAddress 192.168.1.2 -PassThru -RoutingDomain "RD001"
PeerName            LocalIPAddress      PeerIPAddress       PeerASN             OperationMode       ConnectivityStatus
-------- -------------- ------------- ------- ------------- ------------------
Tenant19 10.1.1.10 192.168.1.2 64513 Mixed Connecting
