DR and BDR failure in OSPF

hallo

in a broadcast multiaccess segment with more routers running OSPF if both DR and BDR fail, does the DR and BDR election process restart or not ?

Re: DR and BDR failure in OSPF

Hi Francesco,

as soon one of them fails a new election will be started to replace it. In other words : OSPF does not wait that both die to pick a new DR or BDR. If both die at the exact same time, a new election will occur.

Hope this helps!
