DMVPN between Spokes in different DMVPN Clouds


I would like to know if it is possible to build dynamic tunnels between Spokes in different DMVPN Clouds with different Hubs?  the diagram below shows the topology.

I'm guessing it should be possible, but there are a lot of gotcha's.  For example, do all the spokes share a common subnet for their tunnel interfaces, so they can do an NHRP lookup, for a connection to the spoke in the other cloud, and actually be layer 3 consistent?

Personally, I would either migrate to have a single DMVPN system, or simply route the traffic between the hubs, rather than having it go spoke to spoke between clouds.

Thank you Philip for the reply,
We need spoke-to-spoke to avoid the load on Hub routers, I am trying to migrate to a single Hierarchical DMVPN Design by integrating the HQ Router as a Central Hub, but the problem is that the routing is established by OSPF with every branch as an ospf area.

Is there a way to build a hierarchical DMVPN with multi areas? if no what is the possible solution for this topology?

Many thank's.

Take a look at the Cisco DMVPN Validated Design Guide.

If you have new enough kit (running at least 15.4M4) then change to using iWAN.

I personally hate OSPF for things like this.  I adds considerably complexity in my book.  I would go with EIGRP, and my second choice would be BGP (the iWAN guide shows how to do it using BGP).
