Command Description:

To have Cisco IOS software consider a missing Multi Exit Discriminator (MED) attribute in a path as having a value of infinity, making the path without a MED value the least desirable path, use the bgp bestpath med missing-as-worst command in router configuration mode. To return the router to the default (assign a value of 0 to the missing MED), use the no form of this command.

By default, the software assigns a value of 0 to the missing MED, causing the path with the missing MED attribute to be considered the best path.


Example:

The following example specifies the BGP router to consider a missing MED attribute in a path as having a value of infinity, making this path the least desirable path:

Router(config-router)#bgp bestpath med missing-as-worst
