Redistribute connected generating Type 5 LSA
When I issue the redistribute connect command under the OSPF process, is the router generating Type 5 LSAs for connectedlinks that are already running OSPF? The reason that I ask is because I have a router (R4) that is redistributing connected but this router only has a loopback and one link and both are already running OSPF. If I look at the OSPF database for this area I do not see the Type 5 LSA; however, the ABR is generating a Type 4 LSA for the ASBR R4.
If R4 is not generating a Type 5 LSA for his connected links, then how does the ABR know to generate a Type 4 LSA? If R4 is generating a Type 5 LSA, shouldn't I see this LSA in the database even if it is not being used because there is a "better" LSA that describes this prefix?
