We are planing to establish a MAN link between two of our regional sites. These sites are already having direct connection to Primary and secondary Datacenter. But business requirement is since these sites are critical sites in the event of both the links down at the site then traffic has to go via this new link to other regional site and from there they are expecting forward the traffic to Datacenter.
We are already running OSPF between Remote Site and Datacenter.
Expectation is use OSPF only for new link between SiteA & SiteB as mentioned in the diagram.
All the links are currently running with OSPF area 0 only. Now we are planing to bring new link also unders the same OSPF Area 0. Do i have to take any precausion before proceeding further on this is my doubt.
Like...do i have to use any higher cost vlaue like that. It is not suppose to distrub the existing links. Only in the event of loosing/failure of the connections to Datacenter, we have to use this Point-Point link to reach the datacenter. rest all time it should be in idea state. will this be possible.
The cost value will depend on the bandwidth of the links, check your ospf cost preference, make sure it is at least equal to the highest bandwidth so the ospf will prefer the higher bandwidth. Also, you can configure aggressive timers or BFD for faster detection of the primary link went down
