The clearing MIGHT have a larger effect, especially depending on the number of peers you have and this device's placement in your network. I'd think that a graceful bgp switchover would be simple enough (and wouldn't require clear ip bgp *) The devil, IMHO, is in the IGP switches :( (not withstanding ian's noted bgp router-id change) > > IS-IS and OSPF should be able to pick up the change as soon as the IP > address is entered into the config. > ospf doesn't, for router-id on cisco's atleast, as Warren pointed out :( however! switching from ospf to 'another igp' (ISIS would work well) would avoid that, slide off ospf and onto ISIS, kill ospf when all next-hops switch, which should be 'as soon as isis converges'.
