True or false: If you have an (enabled) loopback interface configured on the router, its IP address will always be used as the OSPF router ID.
Answer: False. Each OSPF process running on the router needs a unique Router ID. If you have a single loopback interface and two OSPF processes, the second OSPF process is forced to select another interface address as its router ID.
Here is a sample router printout:
