FLOATING STATIC ROUTE

During a reconfiguration of a Tunnel, I added an administrative distance of 111 to a static route. Our environment is OSPF. This AD caused the tunnel to flip-flop up and down and no GRE data was exchanged between sites. When the AD was removed, so was the problem and the Tunnel is up. Please explain why this did not work.

Re: FLOATING STATIC ROUTE

Possibly the route was more specific of anything ospf, did target tunnel destination over the tunnel itself, and this cause recursion and self-shutdown of the tunnel.

Re: FLOATING STATIC ROUTE

Thank you. Is the scope of the "Floating Static Route" geared for a typical OSPF evironment rather that a Tunnel environment?

Re: FLOATING STATIC ROUTE

There is no general rule. You use floating static depending on actual needs and you may or may not also use ospf, tunnel or anything else.

Thanaks for the nice rating and good luck!
