5.3 - BGP Peering
I just wondered what thoughts folks had on the use of the "no-prepend" switch at the end of the command, and whether it was necessary in this case. I've personally never really had the occasion to use the local-as option, as when changing an AS number on a device, we've typically just coordinated a maintenance window agreeable to both parties and have done both sides at the same time.
Obviously the use somewhat depends on the topology, but in this case, where AS 100 is connected to AS 54 elsewhere, not using it shouldn't break connectivity, correct? I believe it'd just make it so that R6 would not have an alternate path to the AS 54 prefixes should its frame link go down...
