  • 1.  OSPF ARUBA CX 8325

    Posted Mar 13, 2021 09:32 PM
    Can you please give me a brief explanation of how ospf works in aruba cx?
    Since having the two nodes in VSX 8325 I understand that an adjacency between them must be created at the osfp level outside of production, I currently have this configuration in my HP5500 and I am validating which is the good practice for the migration to CX with VSX
    Thanks for the help.

    interface Vlan-interface555
    ip address
    ospf timer hello 5
    ospf timer dead 20
    ospf authentication-mode md5 1 cipher
    ospf 10 router-id
    default-route-advertise type 1
    import-route direct type 1 route-policy RM-ADVERTISE-OSPF
    import-route bgp route-policy TAG-BGP-TO-OSPF
    authentication-mode md5

    I also have a BGP protocol towards providers but that part is already working, the doubt is with OSPF how would the scheme go in these new SW
