NE40E can not work with C12010 by OSPF authentication because of password error

Publication Date:  2012-07-27 Views:  103 Downloads:  0

Issue Description

NE40E connect with C12010 by GE link, running OSPF authentication. When display ip routing you can not find that OSPF routing information.

Alarm Information

Display ip routing can not find the OSPF routing.

Handling Process

When check C12010 configration we found that when configure the password by "ip ospf message-digest-key 1 md5 7 (password)" in C12010 router, after input the password "cibth" we add one space then press "Enter". So C12010 password is "cibth ", is means "cibth" followed by one space.but in huawei router the password is "cibth" and no space.After we input the password without space, it is working.

Root Cause

Huawei configration:
interface GigabitEthernet2/0/0
ip address
ospf authentication-mode md5 1 cipher L!K_J*G&J8/Q=^Q`MAF4<1!!
C12010 configration
interface GigabitEthernet 2/1
 ip address
 ip ospf authentication message-digest
ip ospf message-digest-key 1 md5 7 00071A041053


 In C12010 when input password by command line "ip ospf message-digest-key 1 md5 7 (password)", don't input space after password.You need directly press "Enter" after the password.
