Help with OSPF through MPLS/BGP

Attached is a network diagram.

I want to setup OSPF throughout and also advertise a default route. The ISP that provides private MPLS runs BGP and will redistribute all OSPF routes to the PE routers (PE1, PE2, PE3, and PE4). I cannot configure the PE routers but will configure the core switches and the ASA1.  

I don’t have an issue configuring OSPF but I am unsure on the AREA 0 through MPLS/BGP.

 

Here is the OPSF configuration I was going to put in place. Anything I missed or don't need or do differently?

 

Site 1 core switch

 

Router ospf 1

Network 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0 area 0

Network 10.20.0.0 255.255.255.0 area 0

Network 10.30.0.0 255.255.255.0 area 0

redistribute static subnets

redistribute connected subnets

I understand that OSPF to BGP

I understand that OSPF to BGP and BGP to OSPF redistribution will happen on all PE routers .

 

So ,with your requirements I do not see any issues with the configuration , other then below one point :

 

If you are anyways injecting default route in ospf domain from Co-Lo site , so all other sites unknown destination traffic will anyways follow last resort to Co-Lo ASA , do we still need to redistribute connected / static ?

Thanks for your help.Yes I

Thanks for your help.

Yes I guess you are correct about the redistribute connected and static.

Thanks again,

I do actually have a question

I do actually have a question, would the routes show up as external ospf routes because they are actually multiple area 0's because they are separated by the MPLS/BGP network?

Hello , yes , to other sites

Hello ,

 

yes , to other sites routes will be type 5 ( as they will be recieving via redistribution in OSPF).

Ok that should not be a

Ok that should not be a problem.

 

Now another question.

I want to also redistribute routes for some Site to Site VPN connections.

on the ASA at the Co-Lo I was going to add this...

Crypto map name_of_crypto_map 10 set reverse-route

 

This will put the route in the routing table as a static route and should get redistributed to all sites if I also add this to the OSPF config

redistribute static subnets

or would I need to add this also or instead?

redistribute connected subnets

Hello , If considered command

Hello ,

 

If considered command is going add a static route in ASA routing table and we need these routes to all other sites then right command would be :

 

Redistribute static subnets 

 

But still considering you will anyway inject default route in OSPF domain from ASA ,which will set last resort in all site's routes to go to Co-Lo site , do we still need any other route to be injecting from Co-Lo site to OSPF domain ?

Yes I see your point. Looks

Yes I see your point. Looks like I was over thinking the setup.

 

Thanks for your help.
