Is it possible to change the metric of a single static route, out of numerous routes being distributed (from a main site router)as a failover for the normally desired route?
The goal is to have the OSPF domain use the normal dynamic route learned from a remote site. Then if that remote site goes down, have the OSPF domain use the distributed static route, which would direct the traffic through the main site.
You have asked essentially the same original question on the WAN Routing and Switching forum where I have given a substantial answer. Rather than reproduce it here I will suggest that anyone look at that forum for the answer. Short version of the answer: I believe that a route map can control redistribution so that some static routes are redistributed with different values as Gautam has suggested. But I do not think that you need route maps to achieve your desired behavior.
To answer the follow-up question that you have asked: there can be multiple redistribute statements in the sense of redistribute static, redistribute rip, redistribute connected, redistribute eigrp 100. But there can be only one redistribute static under router ospf.
