Hi there-would like clarifciation that if a DR has been elected-with
either priority/loopback in a network and the BDR has laso been
chosen.
If a new router is added to the topology with ,say, a higher priority
would this router become the DR? or would the oriignal still be the
DR?
Many thanks

Hi,

Yes, DR or BDR is not preempted.

DR and BDR - so you mean OSPF :)
After the election process, even if you add another router with a higher =

priority DR and BDR will not change. DR (and BDR) will change only if it =

fail, disconnect or something like that.
In IS-IS it's totally different ;)

protocol-I am studying CCNA so have not encountered IS IS as of yet-is
that CCNP?
