OSPF Assistance Required - RouterOS V6.49.5

Tue Nov 22, 2022 6:45 pm


Please could someone assist OR at least point me in the right direction.

We have about 20 Mikrotik sites running on OSPF, we only have 4 of those sites that are randomly dropping OSPF throughout the day with this error in the logs:

"Database Description packet has different master status flag"

I have confirmed with the respective fibre providers, no issues on their side and these sites have different fibre providers as well.

Kind Regards

Make sure all your OSPF-speaking routers are all o the same RouterOS version.
-Make sure you are using loopback
-Maker sure you are not using larger networks than what are bound. For example, if you have don't use if your OSPF networks.
There are a host of other things that can good up OSPF, but these are the top 3 I come across.
