-node {<nodename>|local} - Node

This parameter specifies the node on which configuration details will be created.

-asn <integer> - Autonomous System Number

This parameter specifies the autonomous system number (ASN). The ASN attribute is a positive integer of the range from 1 to 4,294,967,295. It should typically be chosen from RFC6996 "Autonomous System (AS) Reservation for Private Use" or the AS number assigned to the operator’s organization.

-hold-time <integer> - Hold Time

This parameter specifies the hold time in seconds. The default value is 180.

-router-id <IP Address> - Router ID

This parameter specifies the local router ID. The router-id value takes the form of an IPv4 address. The default router-id will be initialized using a local IPv4 address in admin vserver.
