Configuring NBMA Network Attributes

Configuring NBMA Network Attributes


  1. (Optional) Set the network type to NBMA.

    An NBMA network must be fully meshed. Any two routers on the NBMA network must be directly reachable. In most cases, however, this requirement cannot be met. To resolve this problem, run specific commands to forcibly change the network type to NBMA. For details, see Configuring Network Types for OSPF Interfaces.

    1. Run system-view

      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

      The interface view is displayed.

    3. Run ospf network-type nbma

      The network type of the OSPF interface is set to NBMA.

  2. (Optional) Set the interval at which Hello packets for polling are sent on the NBMA network.

    On the NBMA network, after the neighbor relationship becomes invalid, the router sends Hello packets at an interval defined in the polling mechanism.

    1. Run ospf timer poll interval

      The interval at which Hello packets for polling are sent by an NBMA interface is set.

      The default value is 120, in seconds.

  3. Configure a neighboring router on the NBMA network.

    If the network type of an interface is NBMA, the interface cannot broadcast Hello packets to discover neighboring routers. Therefore, the IP address of a neighboring router must be configured on the interface and whether the neighboring router can participate in DR election must be determined on the interface.

    1. Run quit

      Exit from the interface view.

    2. Run ospf [ process-id ]

      The OSPF process view is displayed.

    3. Run peer ip-address [ dr-priority priority ]

      A neighboring router is configured on the NBMA network.
