[j-nsp] router reflector clients and non-clients

If you set the cluster-id for a group all configured neighbors are
So in your example all 4 neighbors including D and E are clients.

However the RR concept is quite flexible, a RR itself can be a client of
another RR ( hierarchically or at peer level)
Which means  A can be the RR of D and the same time D can be the RR of A

Betreff: [j-nsp] router reflector clients and non-clients

Dear Colleagues,

I'm reading
and it is completely mind-boggling. 

The example configuration of the Router Reflector (RR) places all neighbors
(both clients and non-clients) into one group "internal-peers." How is this
supposed to work? How do I tell the RR that routers B and C are clients, and
routers E and D are non-clients?

In Cisco, you set the "router-reflector-client" statement for each
peer (or peer-group) who is a RR-client, explicitly. I don't see
anything of the kind in the example from the Juniper site.

Please help?

Quoting from the document:

user at A# show protocols
bgp {
	group internal-peers {
		type internal;
		export send-ospf;
		neighbor; # client, router B
		neighbor; # client, router C
		neighbor; # non-client, router D
		neighbor; # non-client, router E
