I ask because i believe that both paths will be being used as they are equal cost so EIGRP will install both into the routing table.
The other thing i would say is that routers do not use HSRP, this is for end devices only. Routers uses the physical interface addresses.
If you really want to ensure that all traffic goes via the active HSRP router you could use metrics or PBR but these would not dynamically change if the active interface goes down. Is there a reason you want to do this ?
Edit - should also have said the asterix in the output next to the 172.17.4.33 entry is not signifying the chosen route rather the asterix moves between the 2 routing entries as each route is used to forward packets.
By default Eigrp will load balance across equal cost paths, but as you posted, its not load balancing a cross both paths.
To view all paths available for the Network 10.30.0.0/19, issue (sh ip eigrp topolgy) command. and since you have one active route in the routing table, it does mean its a successor. A feasable successor is a vailable second path can be used with the (variance command).
In your case, you want the router to take the other path for Network 10.30.0.0/19, you can acheive this by higher the delay of Router' B Interface as follows:
* Be carefull not increasing the delay of the interface two much till the route wont be seen as Feasible Successor.
Another way, is to configure (Offest-List) and & increase the Delay of Specific Network as follows:
router eigrp 100
offest-list 10 out 20 interface x
access-list 10 permit 10.30.0.0 0.0.31.255
This will increas the delay of subnet 10.30.0.0/19 by 20 when the router sends an Eigrp update, so when it reaches router A, Router A will decide to go through router-C to reach Network 10.30.0.0/19
It is load balancing across both links. If you look at the output of the "sh ip route | begin 10.30.0.0" you can see that EIGRP has installed 2 routes for the destination subnet into the routing table. So there are two active routes in the routing table.
And from the output of the original post you can see that both routes have an equal cost so the concept of a feasible successor does not come into play.
So yes, as i said you can influence this with metrics but why would you want to. If you do per-destination load-balacing then asymetric routing is not an issue anyway.
No need to apologize at all. Just wanted to point out that it was using both paths.
You are right but i think the original poster assumed that it was using only the standby router and it was in fact using both. And i was trying to emphasize that EIGRP as a routing protocol does not use HSRP.
The metric solution you gave would work fine but i just wondered why do that ?
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
