I wish to configure OSPF on a broadcast segment with 2x x620. When I attempted to do this I was surprised to find that if I wanted to set the interface priority to anything other than 0 (not eligable to be DR/BDR) that I am told I am not at a sufficient license level. I have an Advanced Edge license which is surely enough for me to be able to use a IGP.
Thank you for your responses, it has clarified the issue.
I was not able to use pt-pt as there were to be be another neighbour on the broadcast segment. I have decided to use VRRP with static routing as I do not want to have the adjacency dependent on only one device.
I feel that for a switch of this value, and having purchased the AE licence it is a bit mean to make this restriction.
The advanced edge license allows you to configure OSPF-edge features. Here are the caveats from our user guide:
OSPF Edge Mode is a subset of OSPF available on platforms with an Advanced Edge license.There are two restrictions on OSPF Edge Mode:
• At most, four Active OSPF VLAN interfaces are permitted. There is no restriction on the number of
• The OSPF Priority on VLANs is 0, and is not configurable. This prevents the system from acting as a
DR or BDR.
