OSPF on E5412zl

Hi everyone,

At work, we have acquired a second location, which will connect back to the main location over dark fiber. I'm planning using the link for OSPF routing between the locations. I'm new to OSPF. I managed to get it configured on our Juniper EX4500 L3 switch at the main location, but I'm having a hard time setting it up at the new location with an HP E5412zl switch running K.16.02.0019. Here's what I've done so far.

S-Core# config
S-Core(config)# ip routing
S-Core(config)# router ospf
S-Core(ospf)# area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(ospf)# write memory
S-Core(ospf)# vlan 151
S-Core(vlan-151)# ip ospf area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(vlan-151)# exit
S-Core(config)# vlan 152
S-Core(vlan-152)# ip ospf area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(vlan-152)# vlan 153
S-Core(vlan-153)# ip ospf area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(vlan-153)# vlan 170
S-Core(vlan-170)# ip ospf area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(vlan-170)# vlan 171
S-Core(vlan-171)# ip ospf area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(vlan-171)# vlan 172
S-Core(vlan-172)# ip ospf area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(vlan-172)# vlan 173
S-Core(vlan-173)# ip ospf area 0.0.0.1
S-Core(vlan-173)# write memory
S-Core(vlan-173)#


I know I need to assign a router ID, and tell which port (I'm actually using a trunk, Trk7) to use OSPF with. But the guide (linked below; I realize it's older firmware but can't find as thorough of a guide for newer firmware) doesn't seem to explain this. Further, when I check to see if OSPF is enabled, it is not.

S-Core# show ip ospf area

 OSPF Configuration Information

  OSPF protocol  : disabled
  Router ID      :


Then I got concerned about licensing, however, it seems I already have a premium license and should be able to use OSPF.

S-Core# show licenses

 Feature Group         License Status
 --------------------  --------------
 premium               Permanent
   OSPF
   PIM-SM/DM
   VRRP
   QinQ
   OSPF v3 (IPv6)
   BGP


For good measure, below is how I've configured OSPF on the Juniper at the main location. Any ideas on how to get OSPF running on the HP at the new location would be greatly appreciated.

    router-id 10.0.0.1;

    ospf {
        area 0.0.0.1 {
            interface vlan.101 {
                passive;
            }
            interface vlan.115 {
                passive;
            }
            interface vlan.102 {
                passive;

            }
            interface vlan.103 {
                passive;
                no-neighbor-down-notification;
            }
            interface vlan.113 {
                disable;
                no-neighbor-down-notification;
            }
            interface vlan.116 {
                passive;
                no-neighbor-down-notification;
            }

            interface vlan.119 {
                passive;

            }
            interface vlan.123 {
                passive;
                no-neighbor-down-notification;
            }
            interface ae38.0;
        }
    }
