[quagga-users 13902] Re: Route-map not found with OSPF6

I wanted to send a last update to let others know the solution I found.

If an integrated vtysh config is *not* used, and the configuration is
saved into separate files (zebra.conf, ospf6d.conf, ospfd.conf, etc...),
rebooting Quagga does not cause any problems, and OSPF6d correctly loads
its saved configuration, finds the route-map, and redistribution works
as configured.

It is only when OSPF6 reads its configuration from Quagga.conf that it
fails to find the route-map used for route redistribution.

I created a bug report in Bugzilla to track the issue :
