[ScreenOS] Unable to summarize Type 3 LSA with ‘Area range’ command in OSPF

0

0

Article ID: KB21655 KB Last Updated: 22 Aug 2011Version: 1.0
Summary:
This article describes the issue of the inability to summarize type 3 LSA with ‘Area range’ command in OSPF.
Symptoms:
Type 3 Summary LSA's are originated by area border routers and flooded throughout the AS’s via the associated area. Each summary-LSA describes a route to a destination outside the area, yet is still inside the AS (that is an inter-area route).

There are instances where a few Type 3 LSAs are received in a consecutive network and customers want to further summarize them. The following diagram explains the scenario:






Here the device is configured to advertise the summary route for 44.44.0.0/16; however we still see 44.44.44.0/24 is also being advertised:
SSG520(trust-vr)-> get conf
set vrouter "trust-vr"
unset auto-route-export
set protocol ospf
set enable
set area 0.0.0.0 range 44.44.0.0 255.255.0.0 advertise <<<< to summarize 44.44.0.0/16
set area 0.0.0.1
exit
exit
set vrouter "trust-vr"
unset add-default-route
set route 0.0.0.0/0 gateway 10.204.115.254
exit
set interface ethernet0/1 protocol ospf area 0.0.0.0
set interface ethernet0/1 protocol ospf enable
set interface ethernet0/1 protocol ospf retransmit-interval 5
set interface ethernet0/1 protocol ospf cost 1
set interface ethernet0/2 protocol ospf area 0.0.0.1
set interface ethernet0/2 protocol ospf enable
set interface ethernet0/2 protocol ospf retransmit-interval 5
set interface ethernet0/2 protocol ospf cost 1
SSG520(trust-vr)-> get proto ospf data

Solution:
The Area range command can summarize only Type 1 and Type 2 LSAs on an ABR. This is a RFC standard.
