Description (partial)

Not able to attach feature template due to "maximum prefix command"

While attaching a feature template we are getting the following error.

[16-Dec-2019 19:42:50 UTC] Configuring device with feature template: BR-Template
[16-Dec-2019 19:42:55 UTC] Device is online

------------------ show version ------------------

Cisco IOS XE Software, Version 16.12.01e

Cisco ISR4461/K9 (3RU).

We have tried to remove this value, however the vManage automatically adds this command after configuring a neighbor statement with password, more details in enclosure attachments

router bgp 1000
 bgp router-id
 bgp log-neighbor-changes
 neighbor maximum-prefix 100 100
 address-family ipv4 unicast
  neighbor remote-as 65521
  neighbor activate
  neighbor password wan2.0

We have tried to reboot the device, rebuild the template and this wont fix the issue.
