OSPF_1. ospfIfConfigError

OSPF_1. ospfIfConfigError


OSPF/2/IFCFGERR:OID [oid]: A packet is received on the non-virtual interface from a router whose configuration conflicts with the local configuration. (IfIpAddress=[ip-address], AddressLessIf=[interface-index], ProcessId=[process-id], RouterId=[router-id], PacketSrc=[source-ip-address], ConfigErrorType=[error-type], PacketType=[packet-type], InstanceName=[instance-name])

The configurations of the OSPF interfaces that set up the neighbor relationship were inconsistent. The possible cause was that the values of the Hello timer, dead timer, poll timer were not consistent on the two interfaces or the two interfaces were not in the same area.

Indicates the instance name.

Impact on the System

This trap message is generated after an interface receives a packet indicating parameters are incorrectly configured.

Possible Causes

1. Parameters configured on the two interfaces were inconsistent.

2. The routing protocol on the link layer changed.


  1. Run the display ospf interface interface-type interface-number command to check whether the configurations on the two interfaces are consistent.

    • If so, go to Step 3.

    • If not, go to Step 2.

  2. Perform the following operations according to the networking:

    • If it is allowed to modify the configurations on the two interfaces to be consistent, run the following commands to modify the configurations on the two interfaces to be consistent.
      • ospf timer hello interval
      • ospf timer dead interval
      • ospf timer poll interval
      Then, check whether the trap is cleared.
      • If so, go to Step 4.

      • If not, go to Step 3.

    • If it is not allowed to modify the configurations on the two interfaces to be consistent, go to Step 3.

  3. Collect alarm information and configuration information, and then contact technical support personnel.
  4. End.
