Problem in Static routes redistrubution in OSPF


We have a router on which OSPF process is running on some interfaces and on some another interfaces static routes are configured. All static routes are redistributed in OSPF. For interface on which static routes are configured, PRI to BRI ISDN line is configured as a backup to serail link. This is configured using a dialer watch on remote router having BRI Port. When leased link is ok , this route is properly distributed in OSPF process and we can reach that network from other OSPF running routers. But when link fails ISDN takes over and connectivity is established. in short commands are as follows

ip route NETWORK_A ( next hop address of serial link )

ip route NETWORK_A 200 ( next hop address of bri interface on remote router and distance as 200 )

Now as when first route is down it takes second route and I can ping to remote router even when working on BRI ISDN. But this route is not distributed in OSPF process enabled interfaces.

Second thing I have observed that if I just remove the second command and just put it back again, immediately route is redistributed to OSPF process.

Any suggestion on configurtaion ?

Appreciate any link on

Thanx in advance

Re: Problem in Static routes redistrubution in OSPF

try adding the "redistribute static subnets" command under the OSPF process.

Hi ,

I think redistribute static subnets might help.

can u paste {show run} Plz that would help to see how its configured . Also check out the link .

see/rate if this link works ..

Re: Problem in Static routes redistrubution in OSPF


we have given redistribute subnets command in ospf ,

but still these routes are not getting redistrubuted in OSPF enabled interfaces.

Is there any timer after that only routes are redistributed. Can we minimise this timer. So that secondary routes will be immedialtely redistributed. We waited for 45 minutes thinking that OSPF will redistribute all routing table , but it didnt work. Has it some thing to do with remote router configuration ( dialer watch configured)

Thanks in advance

What's the platform and IOS level you're running? Sounds suspiciously like an IOS bug.
