Hi, I have DDC-WAN-R1 and Core switch. I have few static routes on Core switch which I have redistributed into EIGRP. DDC-WAN-R1 and Core switch is on EIGRGP too. My target is to modify local EX EIGRP distance on DDC-WAN-R1 which is getting D EX from Core.

But my distance on DDC-WAN-R1 is still showing 170. Please help, i have pasted the conf of DDC-WAN-R1 below.

DDC-WAN-R1#sh run | begin router eigrp
router eigrp 1
distance 199 1
no auto-summary

access-list 1 permit

I agree you can not change the AD of external route using the distance command with ACL. That only works for internal routes. I even tried to see if specifying everyone as a the soure with ACL would work but no luck.

What are you trying to accomplish with the change of AD? Maybe there is another way that could be done with higher metric or distribute lists?
