Hi, I have router A and B running BGP ( I have created GRE Tunnel between them working on EIGRP(

I have published both in BGP and EIGRP on router A. Now I am seeing EIGRP Tunnel as primary

on Router B. Ideally it should primary as BGP AD-20. Please help.

The issue is that you are redistributing EIGRP into BGP on router B. This causes to be seen as locally originated on router B (from and to have a weight of 32768, which is preferred over the path received from router A via BGP.

Make sure you do not redistribute EIGRP routes received from router A back to router A via BGP and vice versa.
