Want to confirm the following from you :-

1) What are the different states of EIGRP. What are the function of each of them.

2) What is the default metric while re-distributing BGP into RIP.

Hello Sam,

2) there is no default seed metric in EIGRP you need to set one with

metric BW delay reliability load mtu


router eigrp 100

metric 10000 1000 255 1 1500

red bgp 200


otherwise no BGP routes are redistributed into EIGRP


not clear I try to guess:

sh ip eigrp topology shows the states of routes

normal good state is passive.

a route goes active if current best route failed no feasible successor exists and the router sends Queries to all of its neighbors about the prefix.

there is also the EIGRP neighbor state machine to setup EIGRP adjacencies.

this can be seen with

sh ip eigrp neighbors

Hope to help

Hello Guislar thanks...

For point 2..

I was requesting for "default metric while redistributing BGP into RIP"

But You replied for "Redistribution of BGP into EIGRP".
