Spoke sites have 2 routers each ( on HSRP ) and connect via different links to Central/hub location.Hub location also has two routers each.
Spoke & Hub are running bgp. spoke is running ospf on lan side.
Got a query on how routers operate based on following trace:
On some spoke sites, when user starts a trace to any destination following is the first hop result :
192.168.100.52 4 msec ( interface ip of router2 on spoke)
192.168.100.51 msec ( interface ip of router1 on spoke)
192.168.100.52 msec (interface ip of router2 on spoke)
rest of the hops to destination are fine.
From another spoke , trace gives below result:
192.168.200.51 ( first hop , interface ip of router1 on spoke )
i fail to understand why is it different on both spokes. first one has 3 recurring ips and second one has just one.
ospf equal cost distribution ( if am not wrong ) may be one of the reasons. but in that case, it should happen to second result also.
Appreciate if folks here can help me understand!
