Configures the OSPF router ID. If automatic is specified, the switch uses the highest IP interface address as the OSPF router ID.
|automatic||Specifies to use automatic addressing.|
|router-identifier||Specifies a router address.|
Each switch that is configured to run OSPF must have a unique router ID. It is recommended that you manually set the router ID of the switches participating in OSPF, instead of having the switch automatically choose its router ID based on the highest interface IP address. Not performing this configuration in larger, dynamic environments could result in an older link-state database remaining in use.
NoteDo not set the router ID to 0.0.0.0.
The following command sets the router ID:
configure ospf routerid 10.1.6.1
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
This command is available on platforms with Base license, or higher, as described in the Switch Engine 32.3 Feature License Requirements document.
