I had 3 routers connected with one layer 2 switch in same vlan. Each router is configured with the loopback addresses like 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. so as per the DR and BDR selectiong 22.214.171.124 should be the DR and 126.96.36.199 should be the BDR. but when i issue the show ip ospf neighbor command then its indicating the 188.8.131.52 as DR and 184.108.40.206 as BDR and all the router had same priority field.
yes you are correct so what will be the solution for that? how can i make the 220.127.116.11 as DR? so as per your reply if i will configure the ospf on router then the router which will be the first to enable the ospf it will become dr and then second enable router will be bdr. right!!!
so how can i correct this? even after the clear ip ospf process its continue with the 18.104.22.168 as DR and 22.214.171.124 as BDR.
thanks ankur this is not my production network. i am just doing testing on it. so as per your reply when i will save my config and will reload the routers then it will work as per the rule of OSPF DR and BDR election process. is that right?
Yes provided all routers are reloaded at a same time and come up same time. Also if you configure router 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 with priority 0 they will not participate in DR/BDR election and 184.108.40.206 will be selected as DR.
