EIGRP Routing Problem

Hi all,

I recently move sites to a VPLS provider.

I setup all routers to run EIGRP. This company have a particular setup between HQ and DR sites (Disaster & Recovery)

Please see attached.

The problem resides when I enable EIGRP in the inside interface in the DR router, all the other locations seems to start dropping connectivity.

I think this is because all remotes locations have two paths to the bridge network behind the HQ and DR routers, and causes a loop.

I would like to have HQ router as the primary router and DR router as my backup path to the bridge network.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Re: EIGRP Routing Problem

Hello Aosondoval,

on DR router you should use the offset-list feature in order to make its routes with an higher metric

access-list 11 permit any

router eigrp XX

offset-list 11 out 100

the command will increase the delay component of EIGRP routes sent out the specified interface


Hope to help
