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 All, I'm looking to purchase a new collapsed core switch for one of our sites and I'm looking at either the Catalyst 4500X in VSS or 9500 in Stackwise virtual. I know that the 4500X has been out quite a while and I'm not sure if it will be announc...
I'm trying to decide which option is better to capture all the traffic inside vmware (vswitch), so far the solution will include a virtual machine per host which then it will forward all the traffic to an IP (example 18.104.22.168) on an isolated VLAN. The...
Hi team,Just wondering if there is such documentation or reference or guide, if exist, and that's why I posted under this side of the forum, what I'm looking for if someone can tell me, some sort of order of shutdown the reason is that we will h...
Hi-I'm not sure what I'm missing here but I've successfully loaded a new IOS (c2960-lanlitek9-mz.152-4.E6.bin), changed the boot statement, confirmed the next boot and then reload the switch. After reload it still winds up loading the previous IOS (c2960-...
So the thing is am changing a router with 2 cat 9500 with virtual stackwise and im having some problems with a STATIC nat.
i have a server with the ip 172.31.6.2 and i need to natd to a 10.12.12.2 and leaving access only to some specific networks t...
