EIGRP FD is infinity

Hi Dinesh,

In EIGRP, the FD being set to infinity means that the route has been learned via EIGRP but at the same time, it is known from another source that is more trustworthy, so the learned route can not be used. Notice that in your case, the network is both learned via EIGRP, and at the same time, redistributed from static routes on your own router into EIGRP. In this case, the static route is considered more trustworthy, as its administrative distance is 1, so the EIGRP-learned route won't make it into the routing table. That is the reason for having the FD set to infinity to explain that the EIGRP-learned route is currently unusable.

Best regards,

Peter
