    The OSPF configuration page appears. Table 147 explains the contents of this page.

    Note 

    • By default, All is selected in routing instance filter. For root users, this displays the OSPF areas configured under all routing instances including master (default).

    • Logical system users and tenant users supports only SRX1500, SRX4100, SRX4200, SRX4600, SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 devices.

  2. Click one:
    • Add or +—Adds a new or duplicate OSPF configuration. Enter information as specified in Table 148.

      Note Common fields, such as Router ID, Traffic Engineering, and Trace options are auto populated based on routing instance or OSPF version.

    • Edit or /—Edits the selected OSPF configuration.

    • Delete or X—Deletes the selected OSPF configuration.

      Note During the deleting process, only OSPF area specific configuration is deleted and not the common configurations, such as router-id, traffic-engineering, and trace-options.

  3. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the configuration and returns to the main configuration page.

    • Commit Options>Commit—Commits the configuration and returns to the main configuration page.
