ISIS

:abbr:`ISIS (Intermediate System to Intermediate System)` is a routing protocol which is described in ISO10589, RFC 1195, RFC 5308. ISIS is an :abbr:`IGP (Interior Gateway Protocol)`. Compared with :abbr:`RIP`, :abbr:`ISIS` can provide scalable network support and faster convergence times like :abbr:`OSPF`. ISIS is widely used in large networks such as :abbr:`ISP (Internet Service Provider)` and carrier backbone networks.

Configuring isisd

There are no isisd specific options. Common options can be specified (:ref:`common-invocation-options`) to isisd. isisd needs to acquire interface information from zebra in order to function. Therefore zebra must be running before invoking isisd. Also, if zebra is restarted then isisd must be too.

Like other daemons, isisd configuration is done in :abbr:`ISIS` specific configuration file :file:`isisd.conf`.

ISIS router

To start the ISIS process you have to specify the ISIS router. As of this writing, isisd does not support multiple ISIS processes.

.. clicmd:: router isis WORD [vrf NAME]

   Enable or disable the ISIS process by specifying the ISIS domain with
   'WORD'.  *isisd* does not yet support multiple ISIS processes but you must
   specify the name of ISIS process. The ISIS process name 'WORD' is then used
   for interface (see command :clicmd:`ip router isis WORD`).

.. clicmd:: net XX.XXXX. ... .XXX.XX

   Set/Unset network entity title (NET) provided in ISO format.

.. clicmd:: hostname dynamic

   Enable support for dynamic hostname.

.. clicmd:: area-password [clear | md5] <password>

.. clicmd:: domain-password [clear | md5] <password>

   Configure the authentication password for an area, respectively a domain, as
   clear text or md5 one.

.. clicmd:: attached-bit [receive ignore | send]

   Set attached bit for inter-area traffic:

   - receive
     If LSP received with attached bit set, create default route to neighbor
   - send
     If L1|L2 router, set attached bit in LSP sent to L1 router

.. clicmd:: log-adjacency-changes

   Log changes in adjacency state.

.. clicmd:: metric-style [narrow | transition | wide]

   Set old-style (ISO 10589) or new-style packet formats:

   - narrow
     Use old style of TLVs with narrow metric
   - transition
     Send and accept both styles of TLVs during transition
   - wide
     Use new style of TLVs to carry wider metric

.. clicmd:: set-overload-bit

   Set overload bit to avoid any transit traffic.

.. clicmd:: purge-originator

   Enable or disable :rfc:`6232` purge originator identification.

Segment Routing

This is an EXPERIMENTAL support of Segment Routing as per RFC8667 for MPLS dataplane. It supports IPv4, IPv6 and ECMP and has been tested against Cisco & Juniper routers.

Known limitations:
  • No support for level redistribution (L1 to L2 or L2 to L1)
  • No support for binding SID
  • No support for SRMS
  • No support for SRLB
  • Only one SRGB and default SPF Algorithm is supported
.. clicmd:: segment-routing on

   Enable Segment Routing.

.. clicmd:: segment-routing global-block (16-1048575) (16-1048575) [local-block (16-1048575) (16-1048575)]

   Set the Segment Routing Global Block i.e. the label range used by MPLS
   to store label in the MPLS FIB for Prefix SID. Note that the block size
   may not exceed 65535. Optionally sets also the Segment Routing Local Block.
   The negative command always unsets both.

.. clicmd:: segment-routing local-block (16-1048575) (16-1048575)

   Set the Segment Routing Local Block i.e. the label range used by MPLS
   to store label in the MPLS FIB for Adjacency SID. Note that the block size
   may not exceed 65535. This command is deprecated in favor of the combined
   'segment-routing global-block A B local-block C D' command.

.. clicmd:: segment-routing node-msd (1-16)

   Set the Maximum Stack Depth supported by the router. The value depend of the
   MPLS dataplane. E.g. for Linux kernel, since version 4.13 the maximum value
   is 32.

.. clicmd:: segment-routing prefix <A.B.C.D/M|X:X::X:X/M> <absolute (16-1048575)|index (0-65535) [no-php-flag|explicit-null] [n-flag-clear]

   prefix. The 'no-php-flag' means NO Penultimate Hop Popping that allows SR
   node to request to its neighbor to not pop the label. The 'explicit-null'
   flag allows SR node to request to its neighbor to send IP packet with the
   EXPLICIT-NULL label. The 'n-flag-clear' option can be used to explicitly
   clear the Node flag that is set by default for Prefix-SIDs associated to
   loopback addresses. This option is necessary to configure Anycast-SIDs.
