Creating an OSPF virtual link for an area

Create an OSPF virtual link with remote ABR (if not created already) and enter the vlink context.


You must be in the router configuration context, as indicated by the switch(config-router)# prompt.

Create an OSPF virtual link using the following command. For command details, see area <AREA-ID> virtual-link.

area <area-id> virtual-link <router-id>

For example, the following command creates a virtual link in area 100.
switch(config-ospf-1)# area 100 virtual-link
