Virtual link

Hi Experts,

I am trying to get the virtual link running but couldn't find any obvious reason. Is there anything I am missing here.

Kindly help.

Hi,

could you post your topology diagram.

Did you specify the router-ids in your virtual-link ? ----> sh ip ospf border-routers

Regards.

The problem is that an OSPF virtual link should connect Area Border Routers. But R9 is not an ABR but  is just a member of area 4. If R9 had an active interface in area 0 then the virtual link would be possible but with all interfaces in area 4 it is not possible to have virtual link work.

Hi Richard/Alain,

Thank you, I realised just after posting that I was creating VL between worng routers.

Yes, I was configuring the virtual link on R8 and on R9 which was wrong. Thanks for pointing it out Richard. Alain, please find the network diagram.

Its resolved.

Thanks,

Ravi
