We have 4 upstream providers. All but one is sending us full tables and default routes. The last one is send full tables only.
I was looking to use a route map to define the next hop vs a static entry.
Below is what I was looking at trying, but since it is a live network, I don't want to kill something.
route-map xyz-OUT permit 10
set as-path prepend 70000
route-map xyz-OUT permit 20
set ip next-hop a.b.c.d
Would that work if I defined that route-map in my BGP neighbor config? This route and 1 of the others will be my default routes out, the other 2 are failover only links.
Provider 1 = Primary inbound and outbound (gig)
Provider 2 = Secondary inbound and Primary outbound (the one that will use this route-map, gig)
Provider 3 = Tertiary provider if the first 2 fail. 10 prepends (100meg)
Provider 4 = last resort if the top 3 fail. 12 prepends (100meg)
Thanks for any suggestions
