Location X , Y , Z & central are all running EIGRP. Location X has got a new DS3 link. All traffic from X, Y & Z will traverse to Central via this DS3 link.
I would want the traffic from X, Y & "A" in location z to have their traffic traverse via the DS3 link at location x [ this would be the best route]. However, traffic from "B" & "C" in location Z have to have theri traffic via the 5 E1 links to Central. How do i achieve this.
Subnet details :
Location x - 10.1.x.x 255.255.0.0
Location y - 10.2.x.x 255.255.0.0
location z : "A" - 10.3.x.x 255.255.0.0
"B" - 10.4.x.x 255.255.0.0
"C" - 10.5.x.x 255.255.0.0
central - 10.10.x.x 255.255.0.0
By EIGRP metrics, the best path to Central from location Z ["A", "B" & "C"] is over DS3 on location Y.
Well, I guess that would seriously affect all routing. Look at it like this:
Currently, subnets B & C are receiving a better metric for via A. Filtering it at A in the direction of B & C would be the solution with the least impact. The routers in B & C would then "automatically" select the route(s) offered via the 5 x E1-path.
Better be sure that you know what you are dealing with here, the impacts of misconfiguration can be pretty severe.
You had mentioned about floating Static routes in here.
This should mainly be on the links connecting A from B & C, right. But, for the traffic to traverse via these links from Central location will need all thr 5 E1 links going down. But the probability of this would be very minimal. So, how does floating static routes serve the purpose ?
With your knowledge of the network topology you are likely capable to judge what is wisdom here. As I see it, an intermediate device might fail and cause loss of connectivity to (a part of) the network while there is still a path available. That should never be allowed to happen so I would always configure some redundancy in there, what else do you have it for?
