Like with DR (Designated Router) on OSPF, on broadcast multi-access, IS-IS elects a designated intermediate system (DIS) but keep in mind that unlike with OSPF where a Backup Designated Router is elected , on IS-IS there is no concept of a Backup DIS. Then the pseudonode LSP is generated by the DIS. Like with the Network LSA (LSA Type 2) generated by a DR on OSPF which lists the attached routers, it represents the multi-access network itself and appears virtually as a pseudonode and the attached routers exchange the informations with the DR. Also the DIS lists all attached routers and is see as the pseudonode LSP.Therefore the neighbor routers on the LAN send only advertisements to this pseudonode
Remember on OSPF ,in the Network LSA the metric is missing and it is is always equal to zero this prevents the pseudonode from adding a new cost to the SPF computing, the same thing is valid for the DIS,in the pseudonode LSP,the metric is zero.
But, what about the prefix of the multi-access network?
In OSPF, the DR is now responsible of advertising the Subnet Number for example 184.108.40.206/24 in our topology with the combination of two fields in the Type-2 LSA:
-Link State ID field which is the IP address of the DR in the multiaccess network (located in the LSA's Header). -Mask field located in the LSA's Body.
This is to avoid non-DR to duplicate and carry the same infos (220.127.116.11/24) in their Type-1 LSA.
The result, other routers will compute that by ANDing the IP address of the DR with the network mask.
In ISIS, this is not the case, the Subnet Number of 18.104.22.168/24 is not carried in the Pseudonode LSP' s DIS as we have seen previously with the Network LSA, rather each non-pseudonode isis router will carry this subnet in its own LSP L1 (similar to Router LSA).
The result is the duplication infos in LSPs of the non-pseudonodes routers.
Hi, Our Cisco 4221 routers we use, won't join the "all routers multicast group" FF02::2 after enabling ipv6 unicast-routing and configuring the interface with ipv6. Sometimes we have to disable "ipv6 unicast-routing" and enabling it again to get it w...
Hello all, I have cisco 2911 router with public IP enabled.I am able to connect my router through putty SSH using my private IP, and it works fine.But when I try to connect the router using public IP from outside the network, it says "Network er...
Hi,I'm planning to change IP address on the vEdge interface(vpn0) which connects through control connections.I am wondering if the control connection will be restored by the original configuration in case the vEdge loses the control connection. And i...
Hi, After we upgraded our ASR-1001X to 17.03.04a from 17.03.03 we ran into the issue that the 10gb interfaces are not coming up anymore.We see the following in the logs:*Oct 20 10:17:50.807: %CRYPTO_ENGINE-5-KEY_ADDITION: A key named TP-self-signed-1...
