ProCurve 5406 OSPF Summary route

I'm using multiple areas (multiple networks in backbone 10.200.x.x, and a single network 10.250.x.x area 250). I'd like to summarize the routes being redistributed IN to area 250 via backbone. In cisco it would be a simple summary-address 10.200.0.0 255.255.0.0 command but I cannot for the life of me figure out the HP equivalent.

I'm running "area 0.0.0.210 range 10.200.0.0 255.255.0.0 type summary" with no affect.

Re: ProCurve 5406 OSPF Summary route

In backbone you have networks: 10.200.x.x
If you want to summarize this network you need to configure route summarization on ABR whitch connected to area 250.
The command will be:
router ospf
area 0 range 10.200.0.0 255.255.0.0

This will replace all routes FROM area 0 with this summary route.

If you also want to summarize this network from area 250: network 10.250.x.x area 250.
Use this command
router ospf
area 250 range 10.250.0.0 255.255.0.0

The cisco has exactly the same command to do this:
dyn3(config-router)# area range

area-id --- id of the area whose routes are summarized.

The command which you provide is for summarizing external routes on ASBR.

HP switches also have this command.
But you need command "area range" because you need to summarize interarea routes, not external

Re: ProCurve 5406 OSPF Summary route

Thanks Natasha.... that's exactly the command I had in there, which confirmed what I believed. What I failed to remember at 02:00am was that I have dual routers out there and one was still using the "redistribute connected" command which needed to be removed so only the summary route was visible.
