IS-IS Support for an IS-IS Instance per VRF for IP

IS-IS IPv6 Advertise Passive Only

Last Updated: December 4, 2012

The IS-IS IPv6 Advertise Passive Only feature allows you to configure the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) instance on a device to advertise only IPv6 prefixes that belong to passive interfaces and exclude other connected IPv6 prefixes.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Prerequisites for IS-IS IPv6 Advertise Passive Only

Before you can use the IS-IS IPv6 Advertise Passive Only feature to exclude IPv6 prefixes of connected networks from IS-IS link-state protocol (LSP) data unit advertisements, the integrated IS-IS routing protocol must be configured. See the "Configuring a Basic IS-IS Network" section of the IP Routing: ISIS Configuration Guide.

Information About IS-IS IPv6 Advertise Passive Only

IPv6 Prefixes Only Allowed on Passive Interfaces

You can configure the IS-IS instance on a device to allow only IPv6 prefixes that belong to passive interfaces in its LSP advertisements. This configuration reduces the number of IPv6 prefixes carried in the LSP advertisement.

DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1
enable


Example:

Device> enable

 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.
 
Step 2
configure terminal


Example:

Device# configure terminal

 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3
router isis [area-tag]


Example:

Device(config)# router isis area1

 

Configures an IS-IS routing process for IP on an interface, attaches an area designator to the routing process, and enters router configuration mode.

 
Step 4
net net1


Example:

Device(config-router)# net 47.0010.0000.0000.0000.0001.0001.1111.1111.1111.00

 
Configures an IS-IS network entity table (NET) for the routing process.  
Step 5
interface loopback number


Example:

Device(config-router)# interface loopback 0

 

Configures a loopback interface and enters interface configuration mode.

 
Step 6
ipv6 address {ipv6-address/prefix-length | prefix-name sub-bits/prefix-length}


Example:

Device(config-if)# ipv6 address 2001:688:1001:1000::1/128

 

Sets a primary IPv6 address for an interface.

 
Step 7
exit


Example:

Device(config-if)# exit

 

Returns to global configuration mode.

 
Step 8
interface type number


Example:

Device(config)# interface FastEthernet 0/0

 

Configures an interface type and enters interface configuration mode.

 
Step 9
ipv6 address {ipv6-address/prefix-length | prefix-name sub-bits/prefix-length}


Example:

Device(config-if)# ipv6 address 2001:688:1001:100A::1/64

 

Configures an IPv6 address for the interface.

 
Step 10
ipv6 router isis [area-tag]


Example:

Device(config-if)# ipv6 router isis area1

 

Configures an IS-IS routing process for IPv6 on an interface, attaches an area designator to the routing process, and enters router configuration mode.

 
Step 11
exit


Example:

Device(config-if)# exit

 

Returns to global configuration mode.

 
Step 12
router isis [area-tag]


Example:

Device(config)# router isis area1

 

Configures an IS-IS routing process for IP on an interface, attaches an area designator to the routing process, and enters router configuration mode.

 
Step 13
passive-interface [default] type number


Example:

Device(config-router)# passive-interface loopback 0

 

Disables sending routing updates on an interface.

 
Step 14
address-family ipv6


Example:

Device(config-router)# address-family ipv6

 

Enters address family configuration mode.

 
Step 15
advertise passive-only


Example:

Device(config-router-af)# advertise passive-only

 

Configures IS-IS to advertise only IPv6 prefixes that belong to passive interfaces.

 
Step 16
end


Example:

Device(config-router-af)# end

 

(Optional) Saves the configuration commands to the running configuration file and returns to privileged EXEC mode.
