IP-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes

Hi

I have two routers with static routes configured which are then redistributed into eigrp on the second router the routes are weighted 200 as this is a backup route every so often traffic starts to take the backup link and i get the message below in the log:

P-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes 172.36.0.0/16

*Apr 18 08:40:58.813: IP-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes 172.32.0.0/15

*Apr 18 08:40:58.813: IP-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes 172.34.0.0/16

*Apr 18 08:40:58.813: IP-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes 172.20.0.0/16

Any ideas what is causing this?

cheers

Re: IP-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes

Kev,

Do you see any logs for any flaps of the EIGRP neighbor relationship?

IP-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes means at some point, EIGRP attempted to install routes to the destinations and failed, most commonly because of the existence of a route with a better administrative distance.

When this occurs, EIGRP registers its route as a backup route. When the better route disappears from the routing table, EIGRP is called back through callbackup_routes so that it can attempt to reinstall the routes that it is holding in the topology table.

HTH, rate if it does

Narayan,

Ive just checked the config and whoever originally configured this has configured it not to.

Re: IP-EIGRP: Callback: callbackup_routes

Can you have this configured and then check the logs to see whether you see neighbor flaps along with the other logs

HTH, rate if it does
