Introduction:

 

The "external-out enable" command is available for configuration under the "router ospf process" in case of the IOS-XR operating system. This command basically enables advertisement of intra-area routes on the device as external routes in the OSPF domain.

 

Configuration Example:

 

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:CORE#

router ospf 1
 area 0
  external-out enable
  interface TenGigE0/7/0/15
   cost 10
  !
  interface TenGigE0/7/0/16
   cost 10
  !
  interface TenGigE0/7/0/17
   cost 10
  !
 !
!
end

 

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:CORE#sh ospf database external self-originate  | in State ID

  Link State ID: 10.56.232.0 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.232.32 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.232.64 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.232.68 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.232.72 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.232.96 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.232.100 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.232.104 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.233.12 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.233.16 (External Network Number)
  Link State ID: 10.56.233.20 (External Network Number)

Caution:

 

The "external-out enable" OSPF command should not be turned on without appropriate network planning.

 

Also it is important to note that the router takes "external-out" command without "enable" keyword under "router ospf". An operator can mistakenly type "ext" instead of “exit” to exit "router ospf config mode" and this can have the “external-out” command configured under "router ospf" unintentionally.

 

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:CORE#config
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:CORE(config)#router ospf 1
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:CORE(config-ospf)#external-out ?
  disable  Disable advertisement of intra-area routes as external
  enable   Enable advertisement of intra-area routes as external
  <cr>
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:CORE(config-ospf)#ext
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:CORE(config-ospf)#show
router ospf 1
 external-out enable
