OSPF Backup paths

What is the command to find out the backup path for a route in OSPF when the primary path is active. The show ip route is diplaying only the active path and the show ip ospf database is also showing the advertised-router which is active at the other end. I have two exit points for the destination.

Thank you

OSPF Backup paths

Hi Karthik,

OSPF doesn't keep second best path in database table ( as EIGRP do).

When you lose the best path, OSPF will try to reconverge to the second best path ( if available).

OSPF Backup paths

Hi Karthik,

If you configure OSPF LFA then it will show the backup path as well..Not sure whether OSPF LFA is avilable with IOS however its there in higher end routers with IOS XR..
