Syntax Description

auto-peering Specifies configuring Auto-peering.
ospf Specifies configuring OSPF Auto-peering.
routerid Specifies providing an OSPF router ID.
ipaddress Sets the OSPF router IP address in IPv4 format (x.y.z.w).



Usage Guidelines

This command creates a loopback VLAN with the IP address of the supplied OSPF router ID. Within OSPF, the router ID, VXLAN-extensions are configured along with redistribution of host-mobility routes.

ECMP between two switches is not supported with OSPFv2 auto-peering. Only one link forms an adjacency, and traffic is lost on failover. Link aggregation is the preferred configuration for the topology.

To view OSPFv2 auto-peering status, use the command show auto-peering {bgp | ospf}.


The following example creates and enables OSPFv2 auto-peering using with the OSPF router ID set to "":

 # create auto-peering ospf routerid
