BGP Multipath load sharing iBGP and eBGP

Hello Konstantinos

The maximum-paths command has been around since IOS version 12.2 so I don’t think you’ll have a problem with your particular version. You may find that the syntax has changed a bit, and looks like this:

maximum-paths eibgp number-of-paths
and
maximum-paths ibgp number-of-paths

where the first option enables multipath for both iBGP and eBGP, while the second enables it only for iBGP. Take a look at the following command reference for more info:

I hope this has been helpful!
