Here is my topology and my problem
Serial 1/1 connected to s1/1 of R2 22.214.171.124/30
Loopback 0 126.96.36.199/24
Serial1/1 connected to s1/1 of R1 188.8.131.52/30
Serial1/3 connected to s1/3 of R3 184.108.40.206/30
Serial1/2 connected to s1/1 of R4 220.127.116.11/30
Serial1/3 connected to R2 s1/3 18.104.22.168/30
Serial1/1 connected to R5 s1/1 22.214.171.124/30
Serial1/1 connected to R2 s1/2 126.96.36.199/30
Serial1/2 connected to R5 s1/2 188.8.131.52/30
Serial 1/1 connected to R3 s1/1 184.108.40.206/30
Serial 1/2 connected to R4 s/2 220.127.116.11/30
Note:-Ok here i'm running OSPF area 10 just keeping it simple i'm able to set the network up and ping everyone now what i want on R4 is this in the routing table the path to network 18.104.22.168 is out S1/2 on R4 now i want to change it so that the path is out S1/1 without shutting the interface on s1/2. What i want is redundancy so that if the path is not available through S1/1 on router R4 then it should switch to s1/2 on R4 but s1/1 should be my primary path.
Also i have tried incresing the administrative distance of the route comming on s1/2 but has not helped. It just does not change
Also tried using distribute list the route from s1/2 gets out from the routing table but the other path from s1/1 does not appear.
Have also tried using route-maps incresing the metric compared to the path from s1/1 but still the route path does not switch just stays as it is through S1/2 .
I must be making a silly mistake and i hope u guys out there can help me out.
Waiting for your reply.
Thanks & Regards,
