Redistribute Static in EIGRP

Hi Folks,

As per my understanding following commands are required to redistribute static routes in EIGRP.

redistribute static

And we need to define metric using either set metrics on the "redistribute" command line, or we set a default-metric like below command.

default-metric 10000 1 255 1 1500

But I have observed in one Cisco 6506 L3 Switch it's configured only with the 'redistribute static' command and there was no explicit metric command defined here using metric or default-metric command.

But static route redistribution is working in network without defining the metric. I am not sure how it is working.

Is there any feature in new IOS images that defines some default metric in EIGRP for redistributed routes?

Following are the IOS details on this L3 Switch.

IOS - Version 12.1(8b)E18

image file - c6msfc2-psv-mz.121-8b.E18.bin

Please help me to understand.

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,

Amolak

Amolak,

When you redistribute a static route into EIGRP, it is not mandatory to specify the metric.

The routes are given the interface metrics while redistributing. For all other redistribution you are required to specify the metric either on the redistribute command directly or using the default-metric command
