EIGRP auto-summary

Hi Everybody,

I am configuring and testing EIGRP. I facing instance as described below:

I have 3 Router configured as shown in diagram runing EIGRP.

I have 3 Subnet 172.16.1.0 / 24, 172.16.2.0 / 24, 172.30.1.0 / 24 in Router A

1. When I configure "no auto-summary" in Router A, I am seeing the Routing table of Router C that 172.30.1.0/24, 172.16.2.0 / 24, 172.30.1.0 / 24.

2. When I configure "auto-summary" in Router A, I am seeing the Routing table of Router C that 172.30.0.0/16, 172.16.2.0/24, 172.30.1.0/24.

Why 172.16.1.0/24 and 172.16.2.0/24 is not getting summarized as like 172.30.1.0/24.

I Expected 172.16.1.0/24 & 172.16.2.0/24 will also be summarized to 172.16.0.0/16 like it happended in 172.30.1.0/24 changed to 172.30.0.0/16

Can you please help me to know about this behaviour

Re: EIGRP auto-summary

How are you getting the route installed at RouterA - network statements or redistribution ?

EIGRP will not auto-summarize external routes unless there is a component of the same major network that is an internal route

Re: EIGRP auto-summary

Hi Narayan,

I am not redistributing. Networks 172.30.1.1/24, 172.16.1.0/24,172.16.2.0/24 are all directly connected

Any clues..?

Re: EIGRP auto-summary

Actually i face the similar problem. So at the begining i was configuring manual summarization. Then a CCIE told me that summarization is not so importand if you have a network less than 100 routers. Also he adviced me that i should avoid auto-summary because sometimes it causes problems . I do not know. They know better.

Good luck

Re: EIGRP auto-summary

Auto-sum will cause problems.

For example you have 10.2.1.1/24, 10.3.1.1/24 and 10.4.1.1/24.

With auto-sum your routing tables will show 10.0.0.0/8.

With no auto

you will see this

10.0.0.0/24 is subnetted, 3 subnets

10.2.0.0

10.3.0.0

10.4.0.0
