New BGP neighbor help

cb_it asked
Last Modified: 2014-12-22
I have a MPLS WAN with Verizon that connects my 6 locations. My routers are running BGP. I'm far from an expert so be kind.

Verizon added fiber connections at 3 of my locations. These fiber circuits will replace my copper lines I have now. So I received new BGP IP info from Verizon and I connected up the cables to a different interface on the router. So the current WAN cables are still connected.

So I shutdown the current interface and I'm assuming the new BGP routes will take affect but they don't. The info below is from router 1.

router bgp 65001
 no synchronization
 bgp log-neighbor-changes
 timers bgp 10 30
 redistribute connected
 redistribute static
 neighbor 152.176.XXX.XXX remote-as 65000 (current BGP)
 neighbor 199.220.XXX.XXX remote-as 65000 (new BGP)
 no auto-summary

Any ideas?
