import-summary-routes         - Configure import of Summary LSAs

off                           - Remove the NSSA option from the area

Below is my config sample tried on my appliance:


set ospf area backbone on
set ospf area on
set ospf area nssa on
set ospf area nssa default-metric-type 1
set ospf area nssa import-summary-routes off


Is that suit on your environment?

Below is the parameter description from admin guide:

nssa import-summary-routes  {on | off} -- Specifies if summary routes (summary link advertisements) are imported into the NSSA.


So it's not working?

Did this ever get resolved?  I'm looking to do the same where I want the VS to be a totally stub are (cisco command would be area <1> stub no-summary), and as a result this injects a default GW into the area.
