Straight & simple query..:-). 4507 with IOS 12.2(18)EW acting as L3 core having default gateway to PIX inside (ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.100.1). It also got 1gig p2p connectiont main data center. I want the internet to automatically failover to main datacenter incase if the PIX looses internet connectivity (PIX -->Internet rtr--> carrier) and take over via PIX when the internet connection comes back. Will object tracking feature works here or any other suggestions are welcome.
Thank you all
I would add a floating static route and then redo your current default with a track object.
Assuming 10.1.1.1 is the gateway that your pix uses (providers interface) and 192.168.200.1 is your datacenter gateway, this would be the config.
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.200.1 200
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.100.1 track 100
track 100 rtr 1 reachability
ip sla 1
ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now
You could alternatively configure bgp but I think it would be more hassle.
I looked for this option in first place, before I posted the query, but with the current IOS, it does not support 'track 100 rtr 1 reachability '
PROD-4507-S1(config)#track 100 ?
interface Select an interface to track
Also, 'ip sla' support is not there..
