The use of EIGRP stub routers limits the query scope. Stub routers, by definition, should not be used as transit routers for traffic. Non-stub routers do not send Query messages to the stub routers, knowing that the stub routers should not be transit routers. Configuring a router as a stub router (a small remote router) that can only receive routes, or even advertise connected, summary or static (needs redistribute static) routes. The eigrp stub command has several options (connected, receive-only, static and summary), with the default options (connected and summary).

To disable this feature:

Router(config-router)#no eigrp stub

Thanks for ur reply mohammad,

i tried to to give no eigrp stub, but i got a message saying that i cannt remove this (i forgot the exact message) but seems that the hardware sup2 only support eigrp stub....

The IP base image contains only EIGRP stub routing. The IP services image contains complete EIGRP routing you can migrate your IOS to solve this issue from its root.

As a work around, try using "eigrp stub connected static summary" command:

connected Do advertise connected routes (but there must be a network command matching them)

static Do advertise static routes (needs redistribute static command)

summary Do advertise summary routes (both auto-summary and manual summary)
