Greetings .... I manage a small/medium sized campus network consisting of 4 Cisco 6500 series chassis (each with SUP720's) and a couple hundred Cisco 3550/3560/2960 edge switches. We recently completed a new leg of fiber that will make a completed loop between all of the 6500's .... before I make the pyhsical connection I need to figure out my OSPF entries on each 6500 switch.
I have done some research and am still a bit fuzzy on exactly what I should do.
Looks like I will enable the ospf on each SUP720 (router ospf) and then I can configure each interface to be used in the loop??
I should end up with 2 interfaces per 6500 running in the loop .....
Am I on the right track? A sample list of commands would be helpful if someone can point me in the right direction.
no loop will be in place. Run OSPF in all of them and enable all the 6500 interfaces to understand OSPF area 0 and then you will be able to check and modify the topology whenever you want without massive impact. before anything , of course, design your solution and your needs/requirements.
PS: keep in mind that all the areas you have defined in your domain should be able to run across this 4x6500 core....
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
