Debugging OSPF

Hi;
I am trying to isolate an issue w/ OSPF adjacancies and neighborhood relationship on Cisco platform and issuing the following command:

debug ip ospf events

However, I do not see any activity coming up on the screen. Please let me know where I am going wrong?

Thanks;

Do you actually have an adjacency? (sh ip ospf neighbor) Do you have console logging turned on? Have you looked in the log?

Use this link:
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/ip/open-shortest-path-first-ospf/12151-trouble-main.html

You should be able to figure it out from there.

Good luck,
Steve

If you're accessing it remotely, don't forget 'terminal monitor' to see the log messages in realtime.
Also check a 'show debug' to make sure you're actually debugging it.

Re the adjacency: a fairly usual problem is a MTU mismatch, but that's just a wild guess in this case.
