Can PA firewalls run multiple OSPF Processes?

Replacing a Cisco ASA fw with a Palo Alto and there is 2 OSPF processes running on the ASA ( 1 & 2 ).  Can I run 2 process on a Palo Alto firewall?

 

 I've had a look and tried with running seperate VR's but I cant see how I can advertise the OSPF 2 process subnets into OSPF 1.

 

It's really simple on a router -

router ospf 1

rtr#redistribute ospf 2 subnets

 

Thanks

You cannot run 2 OSPF processes on the same VR - there is only 1 OSPF instance which of course can have multiple OSPF Areas.

 

You can run OSPF on multiple VRs which gives 2 or more OSPF processes.  There is no way to redistribute routes from these into each other.

Yes you can run the 2 process on the firewall if you are asking about that
