Verifications

* Verify ISIS neighbors on all devices:

R1#show isis neighbors

System Id      Type Interface   IP Address      State Holdtime Circuit Id
R2             L1   Et1/0       172.31.10.2     UP    8        R2.01  

----------------

R2#show isis neighbors

System Id      Type Interface   IP Address      State Holdtime Circuit Id

  • Verify ISIS CLNS neighbors:
R4#show clns neighbors
System Id      Interface   SNPA                State  Holdtime  Type Protocol

  • Check routing tables:

R1:

Codes: L - local, C - connected, S - static, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP
       D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
