Senario : I have two sites A and B which are connected by a MAN running EIGRP. Both sites have an IPVPN router connecting to the other international offices over the WAN running BGP. The router at Site A is the primary. We have servers at both sites. Currently if a remote office wanted to access a server at Site A then the traffic originates from router at Site A but leaves via Site B. Is there a way to tweek EIGRP to force traffic to use it local gateway ?
What is probably happening is that the eBGP learned routes are being preferred over the EIGRP routes because eBGP has a better administrative distance (20) than EIGRP (20).
One thing you can do is to use the 'distance' command under the EIGRP process to selectively set the AD to be lower for destinations which you need to reach directly over the MAN. Take care not to do it for all EIGRP router or you might find the sites being use as transit to other sites, instead of using the IPVPN.
Hope that helps - pls do remember to rate posts that help.
Currently all the traffic is forced in and out of site A. But we want to configure it so that local hosts at Site A or B use their local gateway routers.
If the traffic originated from site A then it should leave from site A and vice versa for site B.
Only local traffic between sites A and B should traverse the MAN or if either IPVPN routers failed.
If the MAN failed localised traffic between A and B should be prevented from going across the WAN. Site of Origin has been configured in BGP to ensure that this does not happen.
Is there a way to configure BGP instead of re-configuring EIGRP metrics on the LAN to get traffic to use its local gateway router ? or is route sumarisation in EIGRP the only option as changing the metrics may be too risky.
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
