Cisco ROUTE 2.0: Configuring OSPFv3

Anyone wishing to obtain real-world routing knowledge, and those that are considering CCNP and CCIP certification. This learning path’s discussion of routing could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates. Students completing the ROUTE 2.0 learning path should have a solid foundation in routing fundamentals, Cisco IOS basics, and Cisco routing basics. Attending the ICND1 and ICND2 classes or having the CCNA certification will fulfill these expectations.

Open OSPF is a widely used IGP in IPv4, IPv6, and dual-stack (IPv4/IPv6) environments. The OSPF upgrade to support IPv6 generated a number of significant changes to how the protocol behaves. Understanding the differences between OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 is required for the successful deployment and operation of an IPv6 network using OSPF for routing. This lesson describes OSPFv3, the IPv6-capable version of the OSPF routing protocol, including its operations, configuration, and commands.
This course describes how to implement OSPFv3 in a dual-stack (IPv4/IPv6) environment and configure external route summarization and load balancing in OSPFv3. The limitations and where you need to be careful when configuring OSPFv3 is also covered.


OSPFv3 Configuration

  • start the course
  • identify characteristics of OSPF
  • enable IPv6 unicast routing and start an IPv6 OSPF router process
  • enable the OSPF process to form a neighbor adjacency on a router
  • analyze an OSPFv3 configuration
  • verify OSPFv3 area configurations and statistics
  • verify the OSPFv3 routing table
  • analyze the output of the show ip ospf interface command
  • analyze the output of the OSPVv3 routing table
  • identify the changes made to OSPFv3 LSA type 1
  • identify how routers use OSPFv3 type 9 LSA
  • identify how routers use the OSPFv3 type 8 link LSA
  • match the OSPFv3 LSA type to its description
  • identify the commands used to verify OSPFv3 operations
  • need to see transcript for coverage
  • identify how IPv4 and IPv6 is supported by the OSPFv3 process
  • configure an OSPFv3 process for IPv4 on a Cisco router
  • identify the ways in which OSPFv3 functionality can be fine-tuned
  • verify an OSPFv3 process on a Cisco router
  • verify an OSPFv3 autonomous system
  • list OSPFv3 caveats
