I'm trying to use a tracked object to monitor the availability of a route. At this point I'm just testing this functionality, but I would eventually like to use this tracking feature for HSRP. In this case

The platform is 3550-24-EMI Version 12.2(44)SE2


track 100 ip route reachability

Show track:

#sh track

Track 100

IP route reachability

Reachability is Down (no route)

1 change, last change 02:55:07

First-hop interface is unknown

Show ip route

#show ip route

Routing entry for

Known via "connected", distance 0, metric 0 (connected, via interface)

Redistributing via eigrp 10

Routing Descriptor Blocks:

* directly connected, via Vlan1

Route metric is 0, traffic share count is 1

I was maybe thinking it wasn't working because the route is directly attached.... so i tried the same config with (I put in some fake routes for it). The routes show up in the routing table, however the tracking doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
