Can anyone advise of why and how to resolve an issue I am seeing, in my lab, with IOS 12.2(32) in that if you config the ospf process with 'passive-interface default' to save having to config passive interfaces manually and also have a virtual-link configured, the virtual link will not operate correctly.
The virtual-link shows as up, but the state is 'passive-interface, no hello's' the disconnected area routes do not show in the ospf database, and on the disconnected area ABR show ip ospf shows' AREA 0 inactive' so basically the virtual link doesnt work.
Although everying is configured correctly, in the end I had to remove the passive-interface defaul command from the config, and everything works fine.
I could not determine a way to make the virtual-link non passive.
Can anyone advise on this?
