Video Description

OSPF - Router-id
Must be unique
Identifies the router on the topology (Link-State Database)
Used for the SPF calculation
The LSAs have the router-id of the device generating them. LSAs aren't accepted if the router-id is equal to the one on the receiving device.
Adjacencies aren't established if neighbor has the same router-id
Floodwar: It happens when more than one device has the same router-id
