The OSPFv3 neighbor adjacency is formed by sending and receiving the hello packet to the neighbor router. To identify the neighbors, OSPFv3 uses router-id. The protocol has to be enabled on per-link basis. This document discuss about the common issues that occurs when forming neighbor adjacency and how to troubleshoot them.
It is assumed that the reader has an understanding of IPv6 and OSPF routing protocol.
The three routers (R1and R2 ) in the network diagram are connected via serial interfaces communicate with each other using OSPFv3.The routers are configured with loopbacks and OSPFv3 is advertised on each interface using the command ipv6 ospf <process id> area <area id>.
Please see attached files Router R1and Router R2
Note: All configurations are tested on Cisco 7200 Router running IOS 15.0(1)M5 software.
Step1. Area ID
Symptom Error Message:%OSPFv3-4-AREA_MISMATCH: Received packet with incorrect area from FE80::C801:5FF:FEF8:0, Serial1/0, area 0.0.0.0, packet area 0.0.0.1
Note: As seen from the output, the interface serial1/0 which is connecting to the router R2 is configured in area 0, however Router R2 (packet area 0.0.0.1) as indicated by the error message is configured to be in area 1.
Check for authentication being used on the OSPFv3 process.The authentication type has to be the same between neighbors. For example, in the case of MD5, the passwords and key should be the same.Also check whether the authentication is enabled on all routers within the area.You can use the command show ipv6 ospf <process id> to check whether authentication is enabled in OSPFv3.
Note: In the above output, the OSPFv3 uses MD5 authentication.
Step5. Network Type
Check the OSPFv3 network type by using the command show ipv6 ospf. The interfaces should be configured of the same network type.
Hi Guys, Can anyone clarifies what FEC exactly does? In SD-WAN book they said there is a FEC block (consist of four data packets) the router performs Xor operation on them and send the result in 5th packet called parity packet to the recei...
Hi everyone I was setting up a telnet user and password. On the ccna books it says the following: """Step 1. Use the username name secret password global configuration command to add one or moreusername/password pairs on the local switch.Step 2. Configure...
Hello,In most of times i have worked with Juniper switches but in some cases i should use some Nexus 3064PX series(48x sfp+) so i have some questions :1) as i remembered some switches such as 3750 has some issues with PBR , do we have still problem with P...
So, I was practicing about routing redistribution between different routing algorithms for CCNA and I saw that OSPF requires a "subnets" parameter with the reason of it redistributes classful subnets by default. I know that algorithms like OSPF, EIGRP, RI...
