Hi John,

I don't understand why you need OSPF since all X440 and X460 can be placed as L2 and routed as VLAN to VLAN routing on X670.

Best regards,

Sorry, my fail. Can you recommend what protocols to use for optimal use? Thank you

Hi Jhon,

With your case, I prefer not to use any routing protocol since all end points can be seen as direct connected VLANs. You can make 802.1Q trunk on switch to switch links.

Hello John,

if you are trying to build on OSPF network please check out the gtac knowledge such as the link below for configuration help.

I totally agree with Mrxlazuardin here. Because normally OSPF is a link state protocol that distributes routing information between routers belonging to a single IP domain; the IP domain is also known as an autonomous system (AS). In a link-state routing protocol, each router maintains a database describing the topology of the AS. Each participating router has an identical database maintained from the perspective of that router.

But in your scenario out of the network diagram nothing seems to meet this requirement hence no need of routing protocols to be implemented.
