It redistributes static routes without a default-metric command! Found on Catalyst 4500 with 122-37.SG1.

Former IOS version stop redistribution of static routes without a command like “default-metric 10000 1 255 1 1500”

Now is “router eigrp 123” and “redistribute static” enough! Do somebody now when this has been changed?

Is that all statics, or only statics with an interface as next hop? I know you could do redistribute connected and it would ssed the metric from the interface's bandwidth and delay. I guess it would do the same with a static with next hop as an an interface.

So what values does it give to a static with a next-hop to a remote address?

Recently I read on the forum that static redistribution doesnt require metric. It takes the interface metric for redistribution.

Here is the link for reference:
