% Create the peer-group first

Today while trying to do some lab on BGP, I came across a situation where in I was not able to create BGP peer. I was getting % Create the peer-group first although this was not necessary at all I guess.

I have shown the exact result here:

R3#configure terminal

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.

R3(config)#router bgp 64512

R3(config-router)#neighbor 192.168.344.6 remote-as 64513

% Create the peer-group first

R3(config-router)#neighbor 192.168.34.6 remote-as 64513

% Create the peer-group first

R3(config-router)#neighbor 192.168.34.6 remote-as 64513

% Create the peer-group first

R3(config-router)#no parser cache

R3(config)#router bgp 64512                     

R3(config-router)#neighbor 192.168.34.6 remote-as 64513

R3(config-router)#

 After analyzing the command I have found that there was typo error on the IP address. The actual IP address should be 192.168.34.6 but it was typed incorrectly as 192.168.344.6. And this was the reason why I was getting that message % Create the peer-group first

But surprisingly even after correcting the IP address still I am thrown with the same message.

Hence, the solution which I got from GOOGLE was, I have to type a command no parser cache and it fixed the issue. Learn more about parser cache here.
