Dear,

Dear,

There is nothing such as EIGRP neighbor Router-id. But were in you have the EIGRP Router-id command.

The EIGRP router ID is chosen as the highest IP address on an active interface on the router, unless loopback interfaces are configured, in which case it is the highest IP address assigned to a loopback interface. Alternatively, if the eigrp router-id ip-address router configuration command.

router-1(config)#router eigrp 7 
router-1(config-router)#eigrp router-id 3.3.3.3

 

Here are teh details what EIGRP router id do:-

Hi,

Yes you can findout:-

R1-----R2(r-id2.2.2.2) thining that 10.x network is originated by him.

Look at here:- R1# show ip eigrp topology 10.0.0.0/8   

 EIGRP-IPv4 Topology Entry for AS(1)/ID(10.0.0.1) for 10.0.0.0/8
   State is Passive, Query origin flag is 1, 1 Successor(s), FD is 409600
   Descriptor Blocks:
   10.0.0.2 (Ethernet0/0), from 10.0.1.2, Send flag is 0x0
       Composite metric is (409600/128256), route is Internal
       Vector metric:
         Minimum bandwidth is 10000 Kbit
         Total delay is 6000 microseconds
         Reliability is 255/255
         Load is 1/255
         Minimum MTU is 1500
         Hop count is 1
         Originating router is 2.2.2.2(R2) >>>>>>>>>>. Look for te following info.


Some more info why Router-id is used in EIGRP" is:-

 

EIGRP router id plays a key role for EIGRP external routes.

EIGRP external routes have a field EIGRP router originator that is filled with EIGRP RID.

if two routers have the same EIGRP RID they will not accept external routes originated by the other one.

Hi,

In version 12 , you can see the RID of the router advertising external routes whereas in version 15.0 you should see it for all routes (internal and external) if I reckon correctly.
