This command configures the system ID for an IS-IS router process.
|area_name||Specifies the area name of the IS-IS process to which to add the system ID.|
|automatic||Sets the system ID to the system MAC address.|
|system_id||Specifies the 6-byte system ID using three sets of four hexadecimal digits, where each set is separated by a period. For example: 001B.1F62.1201.|
Automatic (system MAC address is used).
The system ID must be a unique ID within the AS. Typically a system MAC address is used as the system ID. Sometimes a combination of one of the router's IP addresses and 2 prefix bytes are used. The assignment of the system ID may vary depending on how the AS is chosen to be administered.
The following example configures an IS-IS system ID for areax:
configure isis area areax system-id 001B.1F62.1201
