Iam looking into a problem where we have no option other than to use static routes for political reasons ;0)
Unfortunatly our core network between layer 3 devices is a switched ethernet backbone.
The problem we have is that if a next hop of a static route goes down the static route stays valid as the outgoing interface to the next hop is up.
I was told that using the command "ip route static adjust-time" there is some internal feature in IOS that checks the availability of the next hop IP address but in testing this does not work. Can anyone advise if I have miss read the below document.
Kind Regards in advance
In my interpretation this command does not make any kind of checking of the next hop availability just how fast the affected static routes are changed in case of routing table change.
If you want the achieve the requested approach try out the enhanced object tracking.
Hope it helps, rate if does,
