you can do like the given

ip route 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 fasetethernet0/0

ip route 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 fasetethernet0/1 60

60 is the preference, as you are increasing the pref the route will be less prefered.So it will be your secondary route.

HI,

If it is the floating static routes use can use the increased AD as 200 for secondary Link.

ip route 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 fasetethernet0/0

ip route 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 fasetethernet0/1 200

Pls Rate all Informative Post

On a MEN, having a floating static route can give issues.

MEN connects to the router through a switch which in turn connects to the providers network through fiber. If there is a fiber cut at the provider's end, the connectivity between the router and the provider switch will still be UP and the routing entry for 10.0.0.0 will still be reachable through f0/0

Traffic will never fall back on f0/1
