Once OSPFv3 routers become neighbors, they proceed to exchange their LSDBs over that subnet. In most cases, the two routers exchange their LSDBs directly, and when finished, each router lists its neighbor as having reached a full state. Once in a full state, the two routers should have the same link-state advertisements (LSA) for that area.

This section takes a brief look at the LSDB and the LSAs in an area, which once again look similar to the LSDB and LSAs used for OSPFv2. Then this section looks at one rare configuration issue that allows two routers to become OSPFv3 neighbors for a short time, while causing the topology exchange process to fail.

Verifying OSPFv3 LSAs

OSPFv3 uses similar concepts, with slightly different ...
