This is more of a general question, that I am hoping someone out there may have a trick for. When it comes to the CCIE and configuring BGP. Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to speed up the BGP configuration? I feel like a waste a bunch of time trying to figure out (1) if I am using the correct IP address, (2) trying to plan out how everything will connect (IE route-reflector, next-hop self, multipath, etc).
Do you do a mass configuration in a notepad, or do you take it peer by peer? Just looking for some overall guidance.
