Redistribution Notes – AD Manipulation

  • Manipulating administrative distance (AD) is another way to help with a mutual redistribution scenario.
  • EIGRPs has different ADs for internal and external (redistributed) routes
  • OSPF and RIP have the same AD no matter where the route orginated.
  • This means that routes redistributed into OSPF may be used instead of a local RIP route.
    • AD 110 (OSPF) beats 120 (RIP) every time.
  • The distance subcommand allows you to change the AD on specific routes from specific neighbors.
  • This example changes the AD of the route to advertised from to 121.
    • This will make this router prefer a RIP route to the same destination.

Corrections are encouraged.
