I have the following situation as per attached 'mock setup'diagram.Currently all traffic is using R1 as the primary connection.R1 also has memory issues so I want to move traffic over on to R2 with the minimum amount of disruption the environment attached !Currently R1 is displaying the typical problems associated with memory issues so the CLI is non responsive to some commands and it is not recommended to make any changes to the config etc. so I'll have to make any necessary changes to R2 for the time being ; unfortunatly I am not in a situation where I can change the memory at the moment. FYI there are two environments/customers sitting behind the switches one which is seperated with vlan100 and the other with vlan150.We currently use 'weight' to influence outbound routing decisions and 'MED' to influence inbound. What is the best config change to accomplish this as seamlessly as possible. I am thinking to change the HSRP priority first to make R2 the master,then adjust the weight and MED on the route-maps of R2? However will this cause the BGP to reconverge so with timers set to 30 90 this will take 90 secs to come back up ? I would also like if someone could explain to me exactly what the Null0 routes accomplish and the same weight of 50 is applied to the route-map ibgp-in? If there are a few scenarios I'd appreciate if you could explain how it will work and the downtime implications. I would also like to know if it would be easy to just get a default route from the ISP but I guess this would involve filtering routes on R1 which is not currently possible ?
Also what does the following regexp ^\(.* mean ? Thanks in advance
HI Francis, [Pls RATE if HELPS]
Outboud from LAN is as per HSRP Roles.
Weight is again local to the Router attribute. If you make R1 as Offline Router then Weight has nothing to play.
