OSPF Questions 2

November 4th, 2017 Go to comments

Question 1


In IPv6, you can configure many address prefixes on an interface. In OSPFv3, all address prefixes on an interface are included by default. You cannot select some address prefixes to be imported into OSPFv3; either all address prefixes on an interface are imported, or no address prefixes on an interface are imported.

Question 3

Question 4


Because the destination of is not present in the routing table so this router would use the default route (O*E2) to forward this packet. Usually the O*E2 is the result of the “default-information originate” command on the upstream router.

Question 5

Question 6


Before you enable OSPF for IPv6 on an interface, you must perform the following:

+ Complete the OSPF network strategy and planning for your IPv6 network. For example, you must decide whether multiple areas are required.
+ Enable IPv6 unicast routing.
+ Enable IPv6 on the interface.

Reference: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/ip/ip-version-6-ipv6/112100-ospfv3-config-guide.html

Note: If we have already had an active interface, we don’t need to configure the router ID for OSPFv3 anymore because the device will automatically choose that IPv4 address for its router ID).

Question 7

Question 8


Hierarchical design of OSPF (basically means that you can separate the larger internetwork into smaller internetworks called areas) helps us create a network with all features listed above (decrease routing overhead, speed up convergence, confine network instability to single areas of the network).

Question 9

Question 10


To form an adjacency (become neighbor), router A & B must have the same Hello interval, Dead interval and AREA number.

    In Q4 is included in route So packets are sent to out interface Fa1/1. Am I right?

    I’ve just realized of my mistake. Destiny IP is, not :-(

    Answer to question 6 is wrong. Right answer is:

    if ipv4 address does NOT exist: configure router id
    if ipv4 address does exist: no need to configure router id

    Answer to Q6 should be D and E because we dont need to configure router id as the router already configured for ipv4.

    Question 6 – How do we create IPv4 router id ? you have to configure it inside the ipv6 router ospf 1 !that means while your creating the ospv3 process. The question is” Before ” you implement ospfv3. so the correct answer would be E- enable ipv6 unicast routing and D- Enable IPv6 on an interface

    If two OSPF neighbors have formed complete adjacency and are exchanging link-state advertisements, which state have they reached?
    A. Exstart
    B. 2-Way
    C. FULL
    D. Exchange
    the answer is D,,,
    the question is clearly saying are exchanging not done exchanging!
    if it was done exchanging then Full which is C

    @come on: exchange is not a valid OSPF state, is part of the relation forming process. Full is the correct answer here.
