While trying to work out for auto failover, I came across this situation which I couldn?t figure out.
Two test dsl connection for a particular site. EIGRP is used between the core and the primary link and static routes with higher AD(215) is used for secondary link.
The idea is, to route the traffic via secondary link with a higher AD when the primary link goes down.
Initially things go fine. The system routs the traffic via the primary link. Once the PPP session goes down, EIGRP looses the neighbor relationship and the traffic is getting routed via the secondary link which is normal.
But, even after the primary link gets restored, the traffic is getting routed via the secondary link and its not switching back to the primary link which should doo.
The issue is fixed; apparently the faulty behavior is due to the routing problem. Initially I had the following set of commands in the core. I added 10.48.48.0 because, the WAN address for the CPE is 10.48.48.2 & 3. In the core also we have another loopback 172.27.27.27/32
redistribute bgp XXXX metric 2000 255 255 1 1500
no redistribute eigrp
no redistribute eigrp
network 10.48.48.0 0.0.0.255
When I added network 172.27.27.0 0.0.0.255 to EIGRP; the CPE formed relationship with 172.27.27.27 and from there on it began to work fine.
Now, my point is how its forming relationship with 172.27.27.27 and not with 10.48.48.1. I cleared the EIGRP neighbors. But still 172.27.27.27 is the neighbor for test 1.
