enable ospfv3


Enables OSPFv3 for the router.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

When OSPFv3 is enabled, it will start exchanging Hellos on all of it's active interfaces. It will also start exporting routes into OSPFv3 routing domain from other protocols, if enabled.

When OSPFv3 is disabled, it will release all the run-time allocated resources like adjacencies, link state advertisements, run-time memory, etc.

OSPFv3 can be enabled successfully if and only if:
  • At least one of the VLANs in the current virtual router has one IPv4 address configured
  • You explicitly configure the OSPFv3 router ID, a four-byte, dotted decimal number


The following command enables OSPFv3 for the router:

enable ospfv3
