If you do not configure the flush-routes command, OSPF will not unregister and the OSPF routes will be stale. The OSPF routs are eventually removed from the unicast RIB after a timeout period. If OSPF comes back up in p in graceful restart mode, the routes will be refreshed in the unicast RIB.

This command requires the Enterprise Services license.

Examples

This example shows how to flush routes for a nongraceful restart:

switch(config)# router ospf 202
switch(config-router)# flush-routes

Usage Guidelines

Use the flush-routes command when the OSPFv3 Graceful Restart feature is not enabled.

This commands causes OSPF to unregister from the unicast RIB when OSPFv3 shuts down. The unicast RIB removes all the routes associated with this OSPF instance. If you do not configure the flush-routes command, OSPFv3 will not unregister and the OSPFv3 routes will be stale. The OSPFv3 routs are eventually removed from the unicast RIB after a timeout period. If OSPFv3 comes back up in p in graceful restart mode, the routes will be refreshed in the unicast RIB.

Usage Guidelines

Configuring an HSRP group as a slave group clears the group’s other configurations, such as its virtual IP address without notification, so you must enter the follow command before you enter the ip command.

Slave groups may forward reference master group names that are undefined.

This command requires the Enterprise Services license.

Examples

This example shows how to configure a regular HSRP group as a slave group:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# interface ethernet 3/5
switch(config-if)# ip address 11.0.0.1/24
switch(config-if)# hsrp version 2
switch(config-if)# hsrp mac-refresh 90
switch(config-if)# hsrp 10
switch(config-if-hsrp)# name Master-Group-1
switch(config-if-hsrp)# follow Master-Group-1
switch(config-if-hsrp)#
 
This example shows how to remove a regular HSRP group from a slave group:
 
switch(config-if-hsrp)# no follow Master-Group-1
