NSA2650 and removing OSPF: what to expect and what needs manual fixing

Good morning, all! Multiple sites, NSA2650's with Procurve 5412ZLs as core routers.

We'll be removing all OSPF configurations from our sites in preparation for installation of a redundant mesh platform (Fatpipe) and I need to know what to expect once we shut off OSPF on the 2650's and reboot them. NATting, routes, etc... Anyone done this before? I pretty much know I need to build the routes on the Procurve units, but I'm uncertain what extent will need to be rebuilt on the firewalls.

Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks!

    I guess it would depend if your OSPF instance is for private or public traffic.

    If its private traffic, static routes should be enough.

    If is public traffic youll have to consider NAT, firewall rules, and routes.

    Anytime I've had to break OSPF it was private traffic. No NATs were ever setup between networks so I never had to worry about that.
