Unlike other routing protocols, enabling IS-IS requires that you create an IS-IS routing process and
assign it to a specific interface, rather than to a network. You can specify more than one IS-IS routing
process per Cisco router, using the multiarea IS-IS configuration syntax. You then configure the
parameters for each instance of the IS-IS routing process.
Small IS-IS networks are built as a single area that includes all the routers in the network. As the network grows larger, it is usually reorganized into a backbone area made up of the connected set of all Level 2 routers from all areas, which is in turn connected to local areas. Within a local area, routers know how to reach all system IDs. Between areas, routers know how to reach the backbone, and the backbone
Some networks use legacy equipment that supports only Level 1 routing. These devices are typically organized into many small areas that cannot be aggregated due to performance limitations. Cisco routers are used to interconnect each area to the Level 2 backbone.
A single Cisco router can participate in routing in up to 29 areas, and can perform Level 2 routing in the backbone. In general, each routing process corresponds to an area. By default, the first instance of the routing process configured performs both Level 1 and Level 2 routing. You can configure additional router instances, which are automatically treated as Level 1 areas. You must configure the parameters for each instance of the IS-IS routing process individually.
process, all additional processes are automatically configured as Level 1. You can configure this process to perform Level 1 routing at the same time. If Level 2 routing is not desired for a router instance, remove the Level 2 capability using theis-type router configuration command. Use theis-type router
Use thearea tag arguments to identify the area to which this IS-IS router instance is assigned. A value fortag is required if you are configuring multiple IS-IS areas.
The first IS-IS instance configured is Level 1-2 by default. Later instances are automatically Level 1. You can change the level of routing to be performed by a particular routing process using the
Configures NETs for the routing process. Specify a NET for each routing process if you are configuring multiarea IS-IS. You can specify a name for a NET and for an address.
