ip ospf advertise-when-down enable (for a port)

Enable or disable AdvertiseWhenDown. If enabled, the network on this interface is advertised as up, even if the port is down. When you configure a port with no link and enable advertise-when-down, the route is not advertised until the port is active. Then the route is advertised even when the link is down. To disable advertising based on link status, this parameter must be disabled.
