ICX7750 OSPF Issue

I believe we have the Premium L3 Package because I can enter the command "router ospf" and  I was able to create a few areas.

 

But when I go to int ve 10 and type "ip ospf area 10.1.1.0"  I receieve the error "Unrecognized command". i've been looking at the pdf for hours trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.  any help is appreciated.

Re: ICX7750 OSPF Issue

Technically , all 7750 can do Layer routing, if you have the license or not. Of course , without the license the feature will not be supported in case of issues. :

 

ICX7750-L3-COE Certificate of Entitlement to use routing and advanced functionality.

 

Without the Certificate of Entitlement, customers may use base Layer 3 features: VRRP, RIP, and static routes. Other Layer 3 features are considered advanced and require the ICX7750-L3-COE. The Certificate of Entitlement is serialized paper that is not tied to a particular switch; no activation is required.

 

For the area issue, what version are you running ? i have 7750'S under 8.0.0.10b that have the command working.

Re: ICX7750 OSPF Issue

I'm runnign version 8020. It appears that OSPF isn't available on VLANs that'll be used for MCT.

 

Just got this error today:

 

Error - ve 10 is configured with ospf feature that is not supported on mct member/session vlans

 

I was hoping to have dual the 7750s be my core router with connections from each one going out to my ICX 6610s. I wanted to use OSPF for routing.

Re: ICX7750 OSPF Issue

I dont know how well it is supported, but we have a MCT stack of 7750's running OSPF, and we used the following to have the connected interfaces redistributed in OSPF. Of course , that means your OSPF now see's these subnets as External 2, if you can live with that. Also , i really am not sure this is supported. We have a case opened  with Brocade just for this , and are awaiting an answer. 

 

Config :

router ospf
area 0
auto-cost reference-bandwidth 10000
redistribute connected

Re: ICX7750 OSPF Issue

nicolas, I just looked that up in the 8020 PDFs and it looks like external 2 is for IPv6 routing. I may be wrong. You have a source where I can read more about this? I'll upload a diagram of what I'm trying to do tomorrow. 

 

And thanks for all your help :)
