Re: What is the Use of Configuring Router-ID?

Hi,

Its easier to see which device is which and it's not tied to an interface status when you've got no loopbacks.

And it is also mandatory if there is no interface with an IPv4 address for example on an IPv6 only  device because the routing process won't start otherwise.

Regards.

Alain
