I have two OSPF Processes running on a router one for our Voice network and one for Data. What I am trying to do is Redistribute a connected interface into both processes but Prefer the Voice Process. Does the Metric command override what is inserted into the route table?

router ospf 200



area 8141 authentication

timers throttle spf 1000 1000 1000

redistribute connected metric 200 subnets route-map Voice-Connected

network area 8141

distribute-list 10 in


router ospf 100



area 0 authentication


redistribute connected metric 210 subnets route-map Voice-Connected

network area 0

Perhaps I am confused about what you are trying to accomplish. When you redistribute a connected interface into OSPF, it is a connected interface on the local router, and OSPF will advertise it to its neighbors as an external route. The metric that you specify in the redistribute command will specify the metric advertised to neighbors. But nothing in the redistribution will change what is in the local routing table.

This router has 2 OSPF processes. Will the neighbor that it advertises to also have the 2 OSPF processes?

If I have not addressed your question then perhaps you can clarify so that I understand and can answer better?

Yes basicly the connected to router will have the same OSPF processes. What I would like is for the connected network to be added under OSPF 200 in the route table.

The connected interfaces will be advertised to the neighboring router as E2 with metric 200 under the process configured on neighboring router.

The process in to which these routes will be redistributed is, the process u configure on neighbor router.
