We are attempting to modify the administrative distance (AD) of selective routes, redistributed into EIGRP.
The approach we have taken is with the following config on the router receiving the redistributed routes;
router eigrp 12345
distance 80 10.1.3.1 0.0.0.0 mod-ad
ip access-list standard mod-ad
permit 220.127.116.11 0.0.0.255
permit 18.104.22.168 0.0.0.255
Our understanding is that the DISTANCE command under the EIGRP section would change the AD of routes received from 10.1.3.1 matching the permits in acl MOD-AD, to the new AD of 80.
What we have found is that even though we see hits on the ACL, the AD for the routes 22.214.171.124/24 and 126.96.36.199/24 are still 170.
Are we mistaken in our understanding of the use of this DISTANCE command?
Is there another way to selectively (we know about the global change option - DISTANCE EIGRP 90 80) modify the AD?
One thing to note, in the show access-list output of MOD-AD, we see the following -> what does the "check=#" mean?;
permit 188.8.131.52 wildcard bits 0.0.0.255(38 matches) check=48
permit 184.108.40.206, wildcard bits 0.0.0.255(38 matches) check=7239
