RE: how is cold-potato done?

From what I've experience on Cisco routers. The RID isn't the final

deciding factor, it has been the route that was first present. I had a
router peering with 10.0.0.6 and 10.0.0.7 and if I reset BGP on .6 the .7
route will stick and even though .6 comes back up the .7 route will stay.
BGP resets doesn't bring .6 back up. The same applies to resetting .7
Cisco documentation that I've seen has stated the RID is the last criteria.
Interesting.
