Hello Prashant,

let me make two notes:


BGP has a rich set of tools but it is still a destination based routing protocol if this IP address block describes source ip addresses in the internet BGP cannot deal with this.


for destinations specific routes are needed

even if the specified block would describe a destination it looks like your providers are sending you only a default route and this again doesn't allow to make one path preferred.

You should at least receive and accept prefixes describing the block as specific routes on primary router KMC to achieve the desired result if you mean destination addresses.

Hope to help

If I understand you correctly, you want incoming traffic destined to to come through KMC under normal conditions and through C_7200 as a backup.

You could use conditional advertisement to achieve this. Please refer to the following URL for more information on BGP conditional advertisement:
