I have asked a few questions here regarding one of my ongoing network designs and have received some very helpful answers. I now have another question (or two). (BTW, I don't require EIGRP or OSPF on this network, RIP can handle it just fine)
When using RIP, it is my understanding that when a route is removed from the table due to a link going down, when the link comes back up, the route will be automatically reinstated, whereas if it were a static route it would have to be re-added manually.
I plan on using a combination of RIP, floating static routes, and IP SLA tracking to ensure transparent failover connectivity (from one set of WAN links to another) in the event of a physical or logical link failure.
My question is, does IP SLA tracking remove AND reinstate static routes? Basically, I want to know if I could eliminate RIP all together and just use IP SLA to ensure that the static routes are removed when in the event of a link failure and reinstated when the link comes back up (either logically or physically). Please let me know thanks.
