We have a Managed WAN and the Vendor has a Primary and a Backup router. We run EIGRP on our Lan so they are redistribution into EIGRP. However when they bring the backup router up the issue is it load balances because the path to the Primary and backup are the same distance. However they are saying they are adding a distance to the backup router. I think they are using a prepend statement on the route map. However we never see that change. We have a very generic eigrp setup and they say we are overwriting there change. How do we get the metric to be greater on the backup line?
Dan's suggestion would work if you are receiving the route advertised by EIGRP over that interface. But my reading of the original post suggests that the route is redistributed into EIGRP on this router. And in that case changing the delay on the interface does not change the metric of the redistributed route. There might be several ways to accomplish getting the metric to be different. But I think that the optimum solution would be to use a route map to control the redistribution into EIGRP. In the redistribution route map you can set the metric of the backup route to be higher than the metric of the primary route.
Still I am not clear about Tracy's setup. Maybe we can receive a feedback from Tracy.
If you read first 3 sentences : "Managed WAN and the Vendor has a Primary and a Backup router. We run EIGRP on our Lan so they are redistribution into EIGRP", my mind goes to wan routers owned by the provider where the redistribution is made.
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
