can any one tell me how to connect multiple shelves which lies in 2 different OSPF areas . Shelf 1 & 2 are in X area , shelf 3,4 & 5 are in Y area. Shelf 1 is Primary shelf & shelf 5 is acting as GNE.
Since you are already using OSPF for the DCN itself, one option would be to use IISIS on the ILAN interfaces and daisy chain between these nodes.
Works quite the same way, you can create the IISIS router for the shelf and the IISIS circuits over those ILAN ports.
So, that would ensure a good consolidation between these shelfs and keep your DCN topology the way it is.
Still, I have one question... you mentioned only shelf 5 is a GNE (that would be for OSPF area Y), what about the GNE for area X? I assume those are intermediate nodes and managed inband (OSC/ GCC).
You may refer to 323-1851-101 Data Communications Planning and User Guide for DCN.
Hi , thanks for the reply. Above snap is just to understand the installation. Shelf 1 is primary shelf and other shelves are their members.
When we are connecting them in daisy chain setup , our SPLI is not coming bin reliable state. We are using WLAi MOTR & CCMD12 and their adjacencies are not not getting formed.
Suggest further way.....
