I think iknow the answer to my question but wanted to confirm.  We are primarily a cisco shop migrating slowly to arista.  We run ospfv2/v3 and somtimes we want to stop an interfeace from participating in ospf to troublehsoot the path for example.  On an interface you can issue the “ip ospf disabled” command to stop the interface from participating in ospf, but I dont see an equivient for ospfv3 like “ospfv3 disabled”.  On our nexus switches I can run these two commands to accomplish this “ip ospf shutdown” and “ospfv3 shutdown”.

Is the only way to stop an ospfv3 interface from participating in ospfv3 is to make it a passive interface?  If so, why remove fairly common command structure still used in ospfv2 from your ospfv3 config?

You may use, at the interface-level:


arista(config-if-Et2)#ospfv3 passive-interface

passive-interface   Include interface but without actively running OSPF
