Default OSPF areas

By stevepocula ·
When configuring OSPF on a router do you have to include the area in the network command or will it automatically default into area 0?
For example:

router ospf 1
network (area 0 should go here)

Haven't got a sim to run it on but checking to find out if there is a default.I know it wouldn't be good practice to do this if it did.

What router you are? If it's Cisco, then according to Cisco command set you must have "area" keyword in the OSPF "network" command. Not sure what Cisco platform and IOS you are, but everywhere I tried this command, without the "area" keyword it gives the "Imcomplete command" error.

If you have other than Cisco router, then you should refer to appropriate configuration guide or just try this command without the "area" keyword.

Good luck,
