Is there any real use case for configuring NSEL <> 0 ?

Hi Les,
Thanks (leaving the vendor specific problems apart),
net-address is not any vendor-specific component. RFC defines it. By defining net-address in yang it would be easy to integrate with the existing systems. Even ISIS-MIB defines net object.
Now selector is removed from system-id, so new container have to be defined for "selector"
All these things can be done with net-address.

Radha -

You are making the mistake of thinking that vendor specific CLI determines how we define the YANG model.

The protocol functionality is:

1)Define system-id for an IS-IS instance
2)Define one or more area addresses for the IS-IS instance

Whether a particular vendor uses a "net" config or  a "system-id" and "area address" config isn't relevant.


(Of course I work for a vendor that uses "net" config. :) )

Thanks Les.

Regarding the net-address configuration. Find the sample configuration from Cisco router
router isis
net 49.0001.1720.1600.1001.00
net 50.0001.1720.1600.1001.00

net-address here consists of area-address, system-id and selector. Even Juniper router has similar configuration. So I think yang should be modelled to support these existing configurations.
And validation should be done to ensure the uniqueness of system-id.

In the above mentioned net configurations, system-id is unique.

If we don't support net-address configuration in yang, I am afraid back-end implementation of protocols might have to be changed. Please let me know your thoughts.

Also the way yang model is currently designed (assuming the selector is removed from system-id), there is no way to input selector now.

And separate area-address is not needed if we support net-address configuration.

I was going through draft-ietf-isis-yang-isis-cfg-07 and I have below comments.

1. system-id definition should not contain selector. As per NSAP definition, system-ID is 6 bytes and it has below mentioned format and it is only of length 6 bytes.

[Les:] I agree - selector should NOT be part of system-id.

typedef system-id {

    type string {





     "This type defines ISIS system id using pattern,

      system id looks like : 0143.0438.AeF0";


2. Also we need support to configure net-address as shown below.

[Les:] No. The model correct supports the config of one system-id (as modified above) and one or more area addresses.

There are implementations which combine the configuration into a single CLI "net" - but if multiple area addresses are supported the same system-id MUST be entered on each line - so functionally what you have are multiple (synonymous) area addresses and a single system-id. The model has it correct in that regard.


       typedef net-address {

                type string {



                        configd:pattern-help "XX.XXXX. ... .XXXX.XX";

                        configd:help "Network entity title (NET)";



Please let me know if you need more details. This is my first post, so please excuse me in case if I miss to provide some details.
