Cisco IOS IP Configuration Guide
Configuring Integrated IS-IS
This chapter describes how to configure Integrated Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS).
For a complete description of the integrated IS-IS commands listed in this chapter, refer to the
\u201cIntegrated IS-IS Commands\u201d chapter of theCisco IOS IP Command Reference, Volume 2 of 3: Routing
Protocolspublication. To locate documentation of other commands that appear in this chapter, use the
command reference master index, or search online.
IS-IS is an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) dynamic routing specification. IS-IS is
described in ISO 10589. The Cisco implementation of IS-IS allows you to configure IS-IS as an IP
routing protocol.

To identify the hardware platform or software image information associated with a feature, use the Feature Navigator on Cisco.com to search for information about the feature or refer to the software release notes for a specific release. For more information, see the \u201cIdentifying Supported Platforms\u201d section in the \u201cUsing Cisco IOS Software\u201d chapter in this book.

IS-IS Configuration Task List
To configure IS-IS, perform the tasks described in the following sections. The tasks in the first section
are required; the tasks in the remaining sections are optional:

\u2022Enabling IS-IS and Assigning Areas( R e q u i r e d )
\u2022Enabling IP Routing for an Area on an Interface( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Monitoring IS-IS( O p t i o n a l )

In addition, you can filter routing information and specify route redistribution. For more information
about these features, see the \u201cFilter Routing Information\u201d and \u201cRedistribute Routing Information\u201d
sections, respectively, in the \u201cConfiguring IP Routing Protocol-Independent Features\u201d chapter of this

document.
Enabling IS-IS and Assigning Areas

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.

Note
Multiarea IS-IS is supported only for ISO CLNS.

Cisco IOS IP Configuration Guide

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

routers know how to reach other areas.
Routers establish Level 1 adjacencies to perform routing within a local area (intra-area routing). Routers
establish Level 2 adjacencies to perform routing between Level 1 areas (interarea routing).

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.

For IS-IS multiarea routing, you can configure only one process to perform Level 2 routing, although
you can define up to 29 Level 1 areas for each Cisco router. If Level 2 routing is configured on any

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

configuration command also to configure a different router instance as a Level 2 router.
Network entity titles (NETs) define the area addresses for the IS-IS area and the system ID of the router.
Refer to the \u201cConfiguring ISO CLNS\u201d chapter in theCisco IOS Apollo Domain, Banyan VINES, ISO
CLNS, and XNS Configuration Guidefor a more detailed discussion of NETs.
To enable IS-IS and specify the area for each instance of the IS-IS routing process, use the following
commands in global configuration mode:
See the \u201cIS-IS Configuration Examples\u201d section at the end of this chapter for examples of configuring
IS-IS as an IP routing protocol.
Command
Purpose
Step 1
Router(config)#router isis [area tag]
Enables IS-IS routing for the specified routing process, and places
the router in router configuration mode.

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

is-type router configuration command.
Step 2
Router(config)#netnetwork-entity-title

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.

Note
Multiarea IS-IS is supported only for ISO CLNS.

Enabling IP Routing for an Area on an Interface
To enable IP routing and specify the area for each instance of the IS-IS routing process, use the following
commands beginning in global configuration mode:
See the \u201cIS-IS Configuration Examples\u201d section at the end of this chapter for examples of configuring
IS-IS as an IP routing protocol.
IS-IS Interface Parameters Configuration Task List
The Cisco IS-IS implementation allows you to alter certain interface-specific IS-IS parameters. Most
interface configuration commands can be configured independently from other attached routers. Theisis
password interface configuration command should configure the same password on all routers on a
network. The settings of other commands (isis hello-interval,isis hello-multiplier,isis
retransmit-interval, isis retransmit-throttle-interval, isis csnp-interval, and so on) can be different
on different routers or interfaces. However, if you decide to change certain values from the defaults, it
makes sense to configure them on multiple routers and interfaces.
To alter IS-IS parameters, perform the optional tasks described in the following sections:

\u2022Configuring IS-IS Link-State Metrics( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Setting the Advertised Hello Interval( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Setting the Advertised CSNP Interval( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Setting the Retransmission Interval( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Setting the LSP Transmissions Interval( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Setting the Retransmission Throttle Interval( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Setting the Hello Multiplier( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Specifying Designated Router Election( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Specifying the Interface Circuit Type( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Assigning a Password for an Interface( O p t i o n a l )
\u2022Limiting LSP Flooding( O p t i o n a l )

Command
Purpose
Step 1
Router(config)#interfaceinterface-type
interface-number
Enters interface configuration mode.
Step 2
Router(config-if)#ip router isis [area tag]

Configures an IS-IS routing process for ISO Connectionless Network Service (CLNS) on an interface and attaches an area designator to the routing process.

Step 3
Router(config-if)#ip addressip-address-maskDefines the IP address for the interface.
An IP address is required on all interfaces in an area enabled
for IS-IS if any one interface is configured for IS-IS routing.
