AFAIK this kind of situation should not arise. You will have the peer
address if you are fully adjacent to it.

As i understand, the question is whether we need to send an ACK back once we
recieve a LSU ?
Depends, upon the neighbor state. In exchange or loading i.e. when DBD
packets are being exchanged the LSR list contains a list of those LSAs which
are required from the neighbor. When the neighbor responds to these requests
with the proper LSUs , the LSR list is truncated and a new LSR list is sent.
LSAs on the LSR list that have been requested , but not yet recieved , are
packaged once again into the LSR list. Hence there are *no* explicit ACKs
sent for all the LSUs/LSAs recvd.
Consider the state when the neighbor state is full. LSU packets provide a
mechanism for flooding LSAs and *each* LSA must be acknowledged separately.
Hence there is *explicit* ACK sent now !
For each LSA contained in the LSU packet what all steps are taken is
explained in section 13. For any specific doubts, hammer them to this group

BadLSReq is sent when a LSR is recieved for an LSA which does not exist !
If the database copy is newer than the one you recvd then simply send the
database copy back to the sender, encapsulated within a LSU packet.
What is the problem .. i guess i missed it !

If a router belongs to multiple areas then it has to run SPF for *each* area
that it lies in !
I hope i'm clear.
