Re: EIGRP error not on common subnet

Hello Abhay,

this means there is a router with an interface or subinterface in the L2 vlan associated with local router int g0/1.6 that is sending EIGRP hellos with right parameters (AS number k values) but using a source address that is not part of IP subnet on local router interface g0/1.6.

This check is performed by EIGRP to verify that the neighbor can be safely used as an ip next-hop.

ip is out of local subnet.

If you want to build EIGRP adjacency: modify remote router ip address to fit or change the network mask on local router to be able to accept ip

Hope to help

Re: EIGRP error not on common subnet


thanks for replying but the subnet is not the issue here , as mentioned by u (source address is not a part of ip subnet on local router)i have verified it is contained in the same subnet,main interface g0/1 doesnot have any ip adress it is a trunk port and the sub interface G0/1.6 is connected to Layer3 switch and the port on which it is connected it has been assingned a i think it is clear and now explain what could be the issue
