Hi Christian.
Thanks for the answer.

My ISP has provided me the log for the show ip ospf route command:

sh ip ospf route 143.X.X.0

      Destination     Mask            Path_Cost Type2_Cost Path_Type
      143.X.X.0 1         200        Type2_Ext
      Adv_Router      Link_State      Dest_Type State      Tag       Flags
      143.X.X.15    143.X.X.0    Ase       Valid      0          1800 
      Paths Out_Port        Next_Hop        Type      State    
      1     ve 3            143.X.X.11    OSPF      00 00

Watch that the backup is advertising (.15 IP) but the nexthop is the master
IP (.11)

How can I provide more info for you to help me with that. Do you need my
LSDB? I don't think my ISP will provide me an entire database.

My configuration is very simple. Just setting a nssa area, configuring
static routes for my internal networks and redistribute with "redistribute
static metric 1". Just that!

Thank you

It's a bit hard to tell from the information you provided. To debug that you
may want to have a look into the OSPF LDSB. (You can do that with "show ip
ospf database", you can also display more detailed information by specifying
the LSA type there)

The information that was advertised by your failed master may be kept by the
other OSPF routers for up to one hour, that is to save some update traffic
should your master come back online during that timeframe.

However, the neighbors should notice that your master has failed as it's no
longer sending hello-packets. They will propagate that information through
the OSPF domain and all routers should update their routing table
