Technical Summary

This document specifies IS-IS auto-configuration mechanisms.  The key
components are IS-IS System ID self-generation, duplication detection
and duplication resolution.  These mechanisms provide limited IS-IS
functions, and so are suitable for networks where plug-and-play
configuration is expected.

Working Group Summary

Not much controversy. Throwing in ideas which the authors graciously did pick up.

Document Quality

There are two independent implementations.
Not much interest from the main-stream router vendors.
perhaps a question to IESG why do we as IETF not endorse more zero-conf work ?

  Hannes Gredler is the Document Shepherd
