protocols ospfv3 distance

Sets the administrative distance for OSPFv3 routes.

set protocols ospfv3 [ process process-id ] distance [ global global | ospfv3 [ external external | inter-area inter | intra-area intra ] ]
delete protocols ospfv3 [ process process-id ] distance [ global global | ospfv3 [ external | inter-area | intra-area ] ]
show protocols ospfv3 [ process process-id ] distance [ global global | ospfv3 [ global global | ospfv3 [ external | inter-area | intra-area ] ]

The default administrative distance for OSPFv3 routes is 110.

process-id
An OSPFv3 process ID. Enter alphanumeric characters.
global
The administrative distance for all routes. The distance ranges from 1 to 254.
external
The OSPFv3 administrative distance for external routes (routes learned from another protocol by redistribution). The distance ranges from 1 to 254. The default is 110.
inter
The OSPFv3 administrative distance for inter-area routes (routes to another area). The distance ranges from 1 to 254. The default distance is 110.
intra
The OSPFv3 administrative distance for intra-area routes (routes within an area). The distance ranges from 1 to 254. The default distance is 110.

Use this command to set the administrative distance for OSPFv3 routes.

The administrative distance indicates the trustworthiness of a router or group of routers as a source of routing information. In general, the higher the distance, the less trusted the entity. An administrative distance of 1 usually represents a directly connected network, and an administrative distance of 255 means the routing source is unreliable or unknown. The administrative distance conventionally applied to OSPFv3 is 110.

Use the set form of this command to set the administrative distance for OSPFv3 routes.

Use the delete form of this command to restore the default administrative distance.

Use the show form of this command to display the administrative distance configuration.
