can the uplinks on fastiron ICX (7750) be running OSPF (ospf point to point links, no VLAN) if MCT is used ?

With a simple setup as follows :

 

   [R1]                          [R2]

      |                                |

(OSPF)                     (OSPF)

      |                                |

   [S1]-------(ICL)-------- [S2]

With MCT                With MCT

     \                                  /

       \                              /

        ---------[S3]-------

 

Is it possible to run OSPF between the Routers (R1,R2) and switches (ICX 7750) 

From the documentation , this is unclear and add a lot of confusion. It mentions the possibility of using only static routes, for member vlans, but nothing about out of MCT vlan routing.

 

Will there be issues if the MCT VLAN are advertised into the OSPF ? for exemple :

interface VE 300

  ip ospf area 0

  ip ospf passive

 

Any help on this would be appreciated

I dont think OSPF can be on MCT vlans. i'm trying something similar but with OSPF on the down stream ports
