Description Răzvan Sandu 2017-09-04 18:36:17 UTC
Description of problem:

The OSPF command "ip ospf area AREANUMBER", that allows an OSPF interface to be assigned to a *specific* area, is not available (despite being advertised in Quagga's official documentation). 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
quagga- (CentOS 7.x as of September 3rd, 2017)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install quagga package from the official repositories.
2. Enable zebra and ospf daemons
3. Launch vtysh, to obtain a Cisco-like CLI
4. Do "conf t", then "interface SOMEINTERFACE"
5. Check "ip ospf" sub commands

Actual results:
There is no "ip ospf area AREANUMBER" command available, limiting configuration options.

Expected results:
"ip ospf area AREANUMBER" command should be available, as documented here

Please update the quagga package to latest features, as advertised.

Additional info:

Thank  you!

The Quagga RPM package included in current Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x and CentOS 7.x is VERY old; the solution of the above bug (missing command) seems to be simply to include a newer version.

For comparison:

- Current stable Quagga is 1.2.1 (http://savannah.nongnu.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=8811)

- Quagga RPM package included in RHEL/CentOS 7.x is quagga-

- Quagga RPM package included in Fedora 26 is quagga-1.2.1-1.fc26

- Quagga package included in Debian (stable) 9.x is quagga-1.1.1

So please release a newer Quagga package in RHEL/CentOS.

Thank you!

Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 7 entered the Maintenance Support 1 Phase in August 2019. In this phase only qualified Critical and Important Security errata advisories (RHSAs) and Urgent Priority Bug Fix errata advisories (RHBAs) may be released as they become available. Other errata advisories may be delivered as appropriate.

This bug has been reviewed by Support and Engineering representative and does not meet the inclusion criteria for Maintenance Support 1 Phase. If this issue still exists in newer major version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it has been cloned there and work will continue in the cloned bug.
