configure ospfv3 area interarea-filter

configure ospfv3 area area_identifier interarea-filter [policy_map |none]


Configures an inter-area filter policy.

Syntax Description

area_identifier Specifies the OSPFv3 target area.
policy_map Specifies a policy.
none Specifies not to apply an inter-area filter (removes the existing policy, if any).



Usage Guidelines

ExtremeXOS OSPFv3 can apply an inter-area policy to filter some inter-area-prefix-LSAs and inter-area-router-LSAs from other areas. This can reduce the size of link state database of routers belonging to the area.

Using the none mode specifies that no external filter is applied.

Policy files for this command will only recognize the following policy attributes:
  • Match attributes:
    • nlri IPv6-address/mask-len

  • Action (set) attributes:
    • permit

    • deny

Any other policy attribute will not be recognized and will be ignored.

The following is an example of an inter-area filter policy file:

entry one {
	if match any{
		nlri 2001:db8:3e5c::/48;
		nlri 2001:db8:2146:2341::/64;
	} then {
entry two {
	if match any{
		nlri 2001:db8:444::/48;
		nlri 2001:db8:541f:65bd::/64;
	} then {
