From what you've written here, I'd say that what you are seeing is the rule that only a single ABR in an NSSA area will do the type 7 to 5 translation. Generally, when an ABR receives a type 7 from an NSSA area, it will check to make certain another ABR isn't translating this same type 7 into a type 5 before doing the translation. The router ID is used to determine which ABR will do the translation.
Hey Buddy Russ has aswered a question for me before and he is very Vague not precise with his answers.
As far as my posts go.
If I were a CCIE that worked at Cisco which obviously I'm not.
I would explain the situation and answer the questions precisly or not at all!!
If i part explained it I would say i dont know why you are experiencing the other issues.If it s causing issues open a TAC case for investigation dah dah dah.
This would be a complete post.
And I'm sure the preson would be very happy with the response for explaining what they new and being honest about the rest.
The question pertaining i.e the link state questions.
Russ did not do this so perhaps in this case he shouldnt bother either that or he misunderstood
I'm the one putting in hours every evening when i get home from work to all hours of the moring and i try to help myself before I ask here believe me!!!
All the info is in my original post with regards to no link state showing up on R1 with a directly connected PPP interface to R2 18.104.22.168 the other serial interface on R2 shows the link state 22.214.171.124
Russ gave an answer about TWO abr's in one NSSA area whats that relate too its not in my post therfor it is completely irellevant isnt it !!!!
And my question was why isnt it showing up.
That question wasnt answered was it ?
I ask you MR CCIE to give me a answer as to why this would happen all routers are the same running the same IOS.
I dont want to be rude its probably frustration.
But you must admit Russ didnt even touch on that question and what he did say wasnt related to anything I said was it.
I dont think he looked at the topology at the top.
I'm sure he's trying to do the right thing but his post didnt help!!!!
R2 has ABR on either side it is an internal backbone router the ABR's are coneected to 1 other router each which is A NSSS ASBR redisributing connected routes area 1 has tw routers and area 3 has two routers The ABR has 2 area 1 obviously connected to the back bone!!!.
Now I redistributed connected on the edge routers which are loacted in different areas on either side of the backbone router R2!! This Made the Abr's ABr/ASBR routers the routers on the edge
that are redidtributing are also ASBR sh ip ospf says this.
What i want to now is related to the output and LSA on R2 the Backbone router.There shouldnt be any more LSA of any description for 1 side or the other the topology is the same.But thsi is not the case.
but the sh ip ospf database is not showing the link state 126.96.36.199 directly connected.
Network connectivity is fine.
This was the question down the bottom of the POST.
And i wanted domeone to help clear this up ....
You saw Russ aswer that question didnt you ?
So buddy "CCIE"I challenge you to Answer the Bottom two questions.
All the output you require is their go on Challenge youself!!!!
