Prefer Redistributed Static Route

Unanswered Question
Jan 28th, 2008

We are redistributing certain static routes using a route-map. EIGRP also has "internal" routes for the destination subnets. How do we give preference to the redistributed static -- so that they are used and not the "internal" routes?

Thank you.

I have this problem too.

Could you give us a few more details about your topology.

The issue is obviously that redistributed routes in EIGRP have an AD of 170 whereas internal EIGRP is 90.

Now you can change these AD distances under your EIGRP config ie.

router eigrp 1

distance eigrp 90 85

where 90 = internal

and 85 = external

You would need to do this on all routers. However please don't go off and do this without us understanding your topology as changing AD distances like this can have adverse knock on effects.
