Information About IPv6 Routing: Route Redistribution

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.

IPv6 IS-IS Route Redistribution

IS-IS for IPv6 supports redistributing routes into an IPv6 IS-IS routing process and redistributing IPv6 IS-IS routes between IS-IS levels.

How to Configure IPv6 Routing: Route Redistribution

Redistributing Routes into an IPv6 IS-IS Routing Process

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    enable

2.    configure terminal

3.    router isis area-tag

4.    address-family ipv6 [unicast | multicast]

5.    redistribute source-protocol process-id ] [include-connected] [target-protocol-options] [source-protocol-options]


DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
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
redistribute source-protocol process-id ] [include-connected] [target-protocol-options] [source-protocol-options]


Example:

Router(config-router-af)# redistribute bgp 64500 metric 100 route-map isismap

 

Redistributes routes from the specified protocol into the IS-IS process.

  • The source-protocol argument can be one of the following keywords: bgp, connected, isis, rip, or static.
  • Only the arguments and keywords relevant to this task are specified here.
 

Redistributing IPv6 IS-IS Routes Between IS-IS Levels

Perform this task to redistribute IPv6 routes learned at one IS-IS level into a different level.

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    enable

2.    configure terminal

3.    router isis area-tag

4.    address-family ipv6 [unicast | multicast]

5.    redistribute isis [process-id] {level-1 | level-2} into {level-1 | level-2} distribute-list list-name


DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
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
redistribute isis [process-id] {level-1 | level-2} into {level-1 | level-2} distribute-list list-name


Example:

Router(config-router-af)# redistribute isis level-1 into level-2

 

Redistributes IPv6 routes from one IS-IS level into another IS-IS level.

  • By default, the routes learned by Level 1 instances are redistributed by the Level 2 instance.
Note    The protocol argument must be isis in this configuration of the redistribute command. Only the arguments and keywords relevant to this task are specified here.

Configuration Examples for IPv6 Routing: Route Redistribution

Example: Redistributing Routes into an IPv6 IS-IS Routing Process

The following example redistributes IPv6 BGP routes into the IPv6 IS-IS Level 2 routing process:

router isis 
 address-family ipv6
 redistribute bgp 64500 metric 100 route-map isismap
 exit

Example: Redistributing IPv6 IS-IS Routes Between IS-IS Levels

The following example redistributes IPv6 IS-IS Level 1 routes into the IPv6 IS-IS Level 2 routing process:

router isis
 address-family ipv6
 redistribute isis level-1 into level-2

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:
    GigabitEthernet0/0/3
    GigabitEthernet0/0/1
    Serial1/0/1
    Loopback1 (Passive)
    Loopback2 (Passive)
    Loopback3 (Passive)
    Loopback4 (Passive)
    Loopback5 (Passive)
  Redistribution:
    Redistributing protocol static at level 1

    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:

Router# show isis topology

In the following example, output information to confirm that the local router has formed all the necessary IS-IS adjacencies with other IS-IS neighbors is displayed using the show clns is-neighborscommand. To display the IPv6 link-local addresses of the neighbors, specify the detail keyword.

Router# show clns is-neighbors detail
