OSPF only one area and this is not area 0

Is there a problem if I have only one OSPF-area and this area is not area 0? So I have only area 100 but not connected to an area 0?

Thx.

Hi,

I believe, there won't be any problem until & unless you don't have any other area set up in future. If you have any other area need to setup, then certainly you need to set up area 0 and then you must set up to join all other area to this area 0.

If this is wrong, pls reply.

Thnx,

You are quite correct. As long as there is only a single OSPF area then it can be given any valid area ID. As soon as 2 OSPF areas need to communicate with each other then one of them must be area 0.

Hallo!

Thx for your answer.

I have to change the area number from 0 to 100 because my customer has area 0 already in his part of network. Maybe in the future this 2 areas will bei communicate but only maybe in future.
