I'm trying to convert our network to dynamic routes using ospf, as it's all static routes at the moment (in excess of 600 devices, all statically routed!!!!).
Anyway, I'm having to keep service up whilst I'm doing this so I am going to have to have both ospf and static routes running at the same time. My question is this:
If I redistribute the static routes in to ospf, will the network still use the static routes (as the administrative distance is lower for a static route)? If so, would it be better to just run ospf and get rid of the statics in order to avoid problems (I suspect the answer is yes, and I don't mind doing this...I'll just need to get ospf to learn its routes then remove the statics one at a time to see if there are any problems....which there shouldn't be if ospf has learned the route).
