Configuring OSPF in Nexus 5K

Configuring OSPFv2 on a Nexus 5K switches, after configuring area 0 or area 10 it shows as 0.0.0.0 or 0.0.0.10 instead, I'm planning to uplink a couple of ASAs with OSPF enabled, just wondering if the area format showing will be a problem, is this how is supposed to look in the Nexus 5K? and will the 5K be able to form adjacensies with other non-Nexus devices that have area 0 and 10? is it just the format? Thanks for your help!

Hi,

That is just the format and it is not an issue at all.  7Ks also show the OSPF area the same way.  Ans no issue adjacencies with other non-Nexus devices

Would you also know if there's a way to force the Nexus switch to use the other format instead?

No, it will always convert to ip address format.

so, if you type 'ip router ospf 1 area 425" it will convert it to:

0.0.1.169

It's worth noting that you can define ospf areas in IOS in dotted decimal format too.
