IPv6 Routing: IS-IS Support for IPv6

IPv6 Routing: IS-IS Support for IPv6

This module describes how to configure Integrated Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) for IPv6. IS-IS is an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) that advertises link-state information throughout the network to create a picture of the network topology. IS-IS is an Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) hierarchical routing protocol that designates an intermediate system as a Level 1 or Level 2 device. Level 2 devices route between Level 1 areas to create an intradomain routing backbone. Integrated IS-IS uses a single routing algorithm to support several network address families, such as IPv6, IPv4, and OSI.

Information About IPv6 Routing: IS-IS Support for IPv6

IS-IS Enhancements for IPv6

IS-IS in IPv6 functions the same and offers many of the same benefits as IS-IS in IPv4. IPv6 enhancements to IS-IS allow IS-IS to advertise IPv6 prefixes in addition to IPv4 and OSI routes. Extensions to the IS-IS command-line interface (CLI) allow configuration of IPv6-specific parameters. IPv6 IS-IS extends the address families supported by IS-IS to include IPv6, in addition to OSI and IPv4.

IS-IS in IPv6 supports either single-topology mode or multiple topology mode.

IS-IS Single-Topology Support for IPv6

Single-topology support for IPv6 allows IS-IS for IPv6 to be configured on interfaces along with other network protocols (for example, IPv4 and Connectionless Network Service [CLNS]). All interfaces must be configured with the identical set of network address families. In addition, all routers in the IS-IS area (for Level 1 routing) or the domain (for Level 2 routing) must support the identical set of network layer address families on all interfaces.

When single-topology support for IPv6 is being used, either old- or new-style TLVs may be used. However, the TLVs used to advertise reachability to IPv6 prefixes use extended metrics. Cisco routers do not allow an interface metric to be set to a value greater than 63 if the configuration is not set to support only new-style TLVs for IPv4. In single-topology IPv6 mode, the configured metric is always the same for both IPv4 and IPv6.

IPv6 IS-IS Local RIB

A router that is running IS-IS IPv6 maintains a local RIB in which it stores all routes to destinations it has learned from its neighbors. At the end of each SPF, IS-IS attempts to install the best (that is, the least-cost) routes to a destination present in the local RIB in the global IPv6 routing table.

How to Configure IPv6 Routing: IS-IS Support for IPv6

Configuring Single-Topology IS-IS for IPv6

Perform this task to create an IPv6 IS-IS process and enable IPv6 IS-IS support on an interface.

Configuring IS-IS comprises two activities. The first activity creates an IS-IS routing process and is performed using protocol-independent IS-IS commands. The second activity in configuring IPv6 IS-IS configures the operation of the IS-IS protocol on an interface.

Before You Begin

Before configuring the router to run IPv6 IS-IS, globally enable IPv6 using the ipv6 unicast-routing global configuration command.


Note


If you are using IS-IS single-topology support for IPv6, IPv4, or both IPv6 and IPv4, you may configure both IPv6 and IPv4 on an IS-IS interface for Level 1, Level 2, or both Level 1 and Level 2. However, if both IPv6 and IPv4 are configured on the same interface, they must be running the same IS-IS level. That is, IPv4 cannot be configured to run on IS-IS Level 1 only on a specified Ethernet interface while IPv6 is configured to run IS-IS Level 2 only on the same Ethernet interface.

It also explains how to configure the hold-down period between partial route calculations (PRCs) and how often Cisco IOS software performs the SPF calculation when using multitopology IS-IS.

    You can customize IS-IS multitopology for IPv6 for your network, but you likely will not need to do so. The defaults for this feature are set to meet the requirements of most customers and features. If you change the defaults, refer to the IPv4 configuration guide and the IPv6 command reference to find the appropriate syntax.

    DETAILED STEPS
       Command or ActionPurpose
      Step 1 enable


      Example:
      Router> enable
       

      Enables privileged EXEC mode.

      • Enter your password if prompted.
       
      Step 2 configure terminal


      Example:
      Router# configure terminal
       

      Enters global configuration mode.

       
      Step 3 router isis area-tag


      Example:
      Router(config)# router isis area2
       

      Enables IS-IS for the specified IS-IS routing process, and enters router configuration mode.

       
      Step 4 address-family ipv6 [unicast | multicast]


      Example:
      Router(config-router)# address-family ipv6
       

      Specifies the IPv6 address family, and enters address family configuration mode.

      • The unicast keyword specifies the unicast IPv6 unicast address family. By default, the router is placed in configuration mode for the unicast IPv6 address family if the unicast keyword is not specified with the address-family ipv6 command.
       
      Step 5 default-information originate [route-map map-name]


      Example:
      Router(config-router-af)# default-information originate
       

      (Optional) Injects a default IPv6 route into an IS-IS routing domain.

      • The route-map keyword and map-name argument specify the conditions under which the IPv6 default route is advertised.
      • If the route map keyword is omitted, then the IPv6 default route will be unconditionally advertised at Level 2.
       
      Step 6 distance value


      Example:
      Router(config-router-af)# distance 90
       

      (Optional) Defines an administrative distance for IPv6 IS-IS routes in the IPv6 routing table.

      • The valueargument is an integer from 10 to 254. (The values 0 to 9 are reserved for internal use).
       
      Step 7 maximum-paths number-paths


      Example:
      Router(config-router-af)# maximum-paths 3
       

      (Optional) Defines the maximum number of equal-cost routes that IPv6 IS-IS can support.

      • This command also supports IPv6 Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and Routing Information Protocol (RIP).
      • The number-paths argument is an integer from 1 to 64. The default for BGP is one path; the default for IS-IS and RIP is 16 paths.
       
      Step 8 summary-prefix ipv6-prefix prefix-length [ level-1 | level-1-2| level-2]


      Example:
      Router(config-router-af)# summary-prefix 2001:DB8::/24
       

      (Optional) Allows a Level 1-2 router to summarize Level 1 prefixes at Level 2, instead of advertising the Level 1 prefixes directly when the router advertises the summary.

      • The ipv6-prefix argument in the summary-prefix command must be in the form documented in RFC 2373 where the address is specified in hexadecimal using 16-bit values between colons.
      • The prefix-length argument is a decimal value that indicates how many of the high-order contiguous bits of the address comprise the prefix (the network portion of the address). A slash mark must precede the decimal value.
       
      Step 9 prc-interval seconds [initial-wait] [secondary-wait]


      Example:
      Router(config-router-af)# prc-interval 20
       

      (Optional) Configures the hold-down period between PRCs for multitopology IS-IS for IPv6.

       
      Step 10 spf-interval [level-1 | level-2] seconds initial-wait] [secondary-wait]


      Example:
      Router(config-router-af)# spf-interval 30
       

      (Optional) Configures how often Cisco IOS software performs the SPF calculation for multitopology IS-IS for IPv6.

       
      Step 11 exit


      Example:
      Router(config-router-af)# exit
       

      Exits address family configuration mode, and returns the router to router configuration mode.

      • Repeat this step to exit router configuration mode and return the router to global configuration mode.
       
      Step 12 interface type number


      Example:
      Router(config-router)# interface Ethernet 0
       

      Specifies the interface type and number, and enters interface configuration mode.

       
      Step 13 isis ipv6 metric metric-value [level-1 | level-2 | level-1-2]


      Example:
      Router(config-if)# isis ipv6 metric 20
       

      (Optional) Configures the value of an multitopology IS-IS for IPv6 metric.

       

      Disabling IPv6 Protocol-Support Consistency Checks

      Perform this task to disable protocol-support consistency checks in IPv6 single-topology mode.

      For single-topology IS-IS IPv6, routers must be configured to run the same set of address families. IS-IS performs consistency checks on hello packets and will reject hello packets that do not have the same set of configured address families. For example, a router running IS-IS for both IPv4 and IPv6 will not form an adjacency with a router running IS-IS for IPv4 or IPv6 only. In order to allow adjacency to be formed in mismatched address-families network, the adjacency-check command in IPv6 address family configuration mode must be disabled.


      Note


      Entering the no adjacency-check command can adversely affect your network configuration. Enter the no adjacency-check command only when you are running IPv4 IS-IS on all your routers and you want to add IPv6 IS-IS to your network but you need to maintain all your adjacencies during the transition. When the IPv6 IS-IS configuration is complete, remove the no adjacency-checkcommand from the configuration.

        Enables privileged EXEC mode.

        • Enter your password if prompted.
         
        Step 2 configure terminal


        Example:
        Router# configure terminal
         

        Enters global configuration mode.

         
        Step 3 router isis area-tag


        Example:
        Router(config)# router isis area2
         

        Enables IS-IS for the specified IS-IS routing process, and enters router configuration mode.

         
        Step 4 address-family ipv6 [unicast | multicast]


        Example:
        Router(config-router)# address-family ipv6
         

        Specifies the IPv6 address family, and enters address family configuration mode.

        • The unicast keyword specifies the unicast IPv6 unicast address family. By default, the router is placed in configuration mode for the unicast IPv6 address family if the unicast keyword is not specified with the address-family ipv6 command.
         
        Step 5 no adjacency-check


        Example:
        Router(config-router-af)# no adjacency-check
         

        Disables the IPv6 protocol-support consistency checks performed on hello packets, allowing IPv6 to be introduced into an IPv4-only network without disrupting existing adjacencies.

        • The adjacency-checkcommand is enabled by default.
         

        Disabling IPv4 Subnet Consistency Checks

        Perform this task to disable IPv4 subnet consistency checking when forming adjacencies. software historically makes checks on hello packets to ensure that the IPv4 address is present and has a consistent subnet with the neighbor from which the hello packets are received. To disable this check, use the no adjacency-check command in the router configuration mode. However, if multitopology IS-IS is configured, this check is automatically suppressed, because multitopology IS-IS requires routers to form an adjacency regardless of whether or not all routers on a LAN support a common protocol.

          Step 4 no adjacency-check


          Example:
          Router(config-router-af)# no adjacency-check
           

          Disables the IPv6 protocol-support consistency checks performed on hello packets, allowing IPv6 to be introduced into an IPv4-only network without disrupting existing adjacencies.

          • The adjacency-checkcommand is enabled by default.

            Configuration Examples for IPv6 Routing: IS-IS Support for IPv6

            Example: Customizing IPv6 IS-IS

            The following example advertises the IPv6 default route (::/0)--with an origin of Ethernet interface 0/0/1--with all other routes in router updates sent on Ethernet interface 0/0/1. This example also sets an administrative distance for IPv6 IS-IS to 90, defines the maximum number of equal-cost paths that IPv6 IS-IS will support as 3, and configures a summary prefix of 2001:DB8::/24 for IPv6 IS-IS.

            router isis 
             address-family ipv6
             default-information originate
             distance 90
             maximum-paths 3
             summary-prefix 2001:DB8::/24
             exit

            Example: Disabling IPv6 Protocol-Support Consistency Checks

            The following example disables the adjacency-check command to allow a network administrator to configure IPv6 IS-IS on the router without disrupting the existing adjacencies:

            router isis 
             address-family ipv6
             no adjacency-check

            Example: Configuring IS-IS for IPv6

            In the following example, output information about the parameters and current state of that active IPv6 routing processes is displayed using the show ipv6 protocolscommand:

            Router# show ipv6 protocols
            IPv6 Routing Protocol is "connected"
            IPv6 Routing Protocol is "static"
            IPv6 Routing Protocol is "isis"
              Interfaces:
                Ethernet0

                Loopback4 (Passive)
                Loopback5 (Passive)
              Redistribution:
                Redistributing protocol static at level 1
              Address Summarization:

                L2: 2001:DB8:66::/16  advertised with metric 10
                L2: 2001:DB8:77::/16  advertised with metric 10

            In the following example, output information about all connected routers running IS-IS in all areas is displayed using the show isis topologycommand:
