OSPF and the Process ID

Hi all,

Just getting to grips with OSPF for my CCNA. I have a question which I'm sure most of you will be able to answer easily.

On an Area Border Router when configuring 'network 172.16.0.1 0.0.0.0 area 0 and network 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 area 1, can both lines be configured under the same OSPF process ID, ie 'router ospf 1'? Or when configuring 2 OSPF areas, does that router need 2 OSPF processes running?

Thanks all,

Garry

Hi,

You just use the single ospf process id, and put all your network statements in there.

Thanks Lee! I was just wondering because of the 2 Areas.

You may run multiple OSPF processes on a single router, but take note that it creates multiple database instances that add extra overhead to the router.
