Configuring an OSPFv3 Dynamic Hostname

Configuring an OSPFv3 Dynamic Hostname

Compared with router IDs, Open Shortest Path First (OSPFv3) dynamic hostnames are easier to memorize. Therefore, using dynamic hostnames to identify routers can facilitate network management.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring a dynamic hostname, complete the following tasks:

  • Configure an IP address for each interface to ensure that neighboring routers can use the IP addresses to communicate with each other.
  • Configuring Basic OSPFv3 Functions


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run ospfv3 [ process-id ]

    The OSPFv3 process view is displayed.

  3. Run hostname [ hostname ]

    An OSPFv3 dynamic hostname is configured.

    If you specify hostname in hostname command, hostname is advertised as the dynamic hostname. If no hostname is specified in hostname command, the hostname specified in the sysname command is advertised as the dynamic hostname.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.

Verifying the Configuration

Run the display ospfv3 hostname-table command to check OSPFv3 hostname information.
