Are these static routes dynamically distributed anywhere?

If so, what dynamic protocol are you using and through how many hops will it be distributing?

You may also want to add the interface as an outband perameter as well e.g. A.B.C.D eth0 E.F.G.H distance 40

This helps with any recursive problems of static routes which helps with convergence behaviours

add new route in global config, previous route will be overwritten...

Hello Madan,

add the new static route and then remove the old one I think both will be in the configuration.

the new route is a floating static route with AD 40 that can be overriden by eBGP.

If you want to make a floating static route for another protocol use a value of 200.

In this way there shouldn't be service interruption.

Hope to help
