configure ospfv3 add interface all

configure ospfv3 add [vlan | tunnel] all {instance-id instanceId} area area_identifier {passive}


Enables OSPFv3 on all VLANs or all tunnels (router interfaces).

Syntax Description

all Specifies all IPv6 configured VLANs or all IPv6 tunnels.
instanceId Specifies the instance ID for these interfaces. Range is 0 to 255.
area_identifier Specifies the area to which the interfaces are assigned.
passive Specifies to stop sending and receiving hello packets on this interface.


OSPFv3 is disabled on the interfaces.

The default instance ID is 0.

Usage Guidelines

This command is used to enable the OSPFv3 protocol on all IPv6 configured VLANs or all IPv6 tunnels. The instance ID is used to control the selection of other routers as neighbors. The router will become a neighbor only with routers that have the same instance ID.

To change the instance ID associated with an interface, you must first remove the interface from the OSPFv3 area and then add it back with a different instance ID.

The passive parameter indicates that the router only synchronizes and listens, and does not originate or send any new information on the interface.


The following command enables OSPFv3 on all IPv6 tunnels:

configure ospfv3 add tunnel all area
