OSPF Template

Use the OSPF template to apply OSPF configurations per segment to all appliances in the SD-WAN fabric.

  1. Click the edit icon next to the segment for which you want to modify the configuration.

  2. Configure the following elements as needed:

    Field Description
    Enable OSPF indicates whether the segment can access OSPF protocol. If you select Don’t apply, Orchestrator ignores this field when applying this template to appliances.
    Route Map name to Redistribute routes to OSPF Name of the route map being redistributed to the SD-WAN.

    The OSPF template is used in conjunction with the Route Redistribution Maps template. OSPF route maps are configured in the Route Redistribution Maps template, and then applied in the OSPF template. The default OSPF route map name is “default_rtmap_to_ospf”.

    NOTE: Leave this field blank to preserve the current setting on the appliance.
    Admin Status Indicates whether the interface admin status is up or down. If you select Don’t apply, Orchestrator ignores this field when applying this template to appliances.
    Hello Interval Length of time (in seconds) that must transpire between hello packets that a router sends on an OSPF interface.
    Dead Interval Length of time (in seconds) that must transpire before neighbors that have not detected a router’s hello packets can declare the OSPF router down.
    Transmit Delay Length of time (in seconds) that must transpire before transmitting a link state update packet. Specify a value from 1 to 65535.
    Retransmit Interval Length of time (in seconds) that a router that has received no acknowledgment must wait before resending transmissions.
    Authentication Type Type of authentication to use for requests. Select one of the following drop-down list options:

    Don’t apply – Orchestrator ignores this field when applying this template to appliances.

    None – Authentication not performed.

    Text – Simple password authentication, which allows a key (password) to be configured per area.

    MD5 – Message Digest cryptographic authentication. A key ID and key (password) are configured on each router. The router uses an algorithm based on the OSPF packet, the key ID, and the key to generate a message digest that gets appended to the packet.
    Authentication Key Key (password) to use for authentication of requests. This field is available only if Authentication Type is set to Text.
    MD5 Key Key ID to use for MD5 authentication of requests. This field is available only if Authentication Type is set to MD5.
    MD5 Password / MD5 Confirm Password Password for the MD5 key. These fields are available only if Authentication Type is set to MD5. Specify and confirm the password.
  3. Click Update.
