I think Ganpat was asking about the trick of defining a unique SysID by padding a dotted-decimal loopback IP address with zeros. On the URL posted by Guiseppe, you can see this trick occuring in the configuration of
ip address 172.16.1.1 255.255.255.255
1) pad loopback with zeros (we pad each octet to 3 digits):
172.16.1.1 ---> 172.016.001.001
2) rearrange the bits to 3 groups of 4 digits:
3) add area prefix (49.0001) and NSEL suffix (.00)
The same trick has been used in the configuration of Router2, but not in Router 3.
