Enable the OSPF traffic engineering features.


Traffic engineering support is disabled.


advertise-unnumbered-interfaces—(Optional) (OSPFv2 only) Include the link-local identifier in the link-local traffic-engineering link-state advertisement. You do not need to include this statement if RSVP is able to signal unnumbered interfaces as defined in RFC 3477.

credibility-protocol-preference—(Optional) (OSPFv2 only) Specify to use the configured preference value for OSPF routes to calculate the traffic engineering database credibility value used to select IGP routes. Use this statement to override the default behavior of having the traffic engineering database prefer IS-IS routes even if OSPF routes are configured a with a lower, that is, preferred, preference value.

multicast-rpf-routes—(Optional) (OSPFv2 only) Install routes for multicast RPF checks into the inet.2 routing table.

no-topology—(Optional) (OSPFv2 only) Disable the dissemination of the link-state topology information.

The remaining statements are explained separately.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.
