Ovais,

What you are looking for is reliable static route feature. Please refer to the following URL for more information:

Re: conditional static route

ip route [destination ip] [destination subnet] [gateway] [track]

You need to create a track that if valid the ip route will be installed in the RIB.

Re: conditional static route

It uses the cisco IP SLA feature

We generally configure a IP SLA monitor that uses the ICMPecho functionality and tracks the reachability of destination specified.

We then bind this to the static route as Edison quoted above. When the destination specified is not reachable then that route is flushed from the table. This technique helps as you can have the IP SLA destination multiple hops away and still flush out the static route entry for a failure not with the immediate nexthop.

Re: conditional static route

Let's say if you wanted to install a default route based on the S0/0 being up.

track 1 interface s0/0 line-protocol

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 [gateway] track 1
