I currently have a WS-C4507R+E at the distribution layer which does static default routing to the WAN Router. The requirement is to run EIGRP on it and have another P2P link terminated on this Switch from a nearby office. This router hence needs to run EIGRP to receive routing updates from the link that connects to the WAN router and share that over the P2P link that connects to the other office. The platform has a "WS-X45-SUP8-E" with "cat4500es8-universal.SPA.03.08.01.E.152-4.E1.bin" and an "IPBase" license.
I configured the EIGRP process on the Switch and a default command "eigrp stub connected summary" was added by default. The command cannot be removed as when I try to remove it, it says that "EIGRP is restricted to stub configurations only on this platform.". So now basically I cannot have this device work as a transit router because of this stub configuration.
I came across another such article where it was suggested that you do a bit if a hack with stub with the leak-map command which allows you to pass few/all of the subnets received via one neighbor to another. I cannot try this out until I have another maintenance window and would like to know if this platform would indeed support this configuration. Need your advise.
Thanks in advance.
the below leak-map configuration would allow EIGRP to advertise all routes, an thus your 4507 to function as a de facto fully enabled EIGRP router.
IP Base does support that, as far as I know.
ip prefix-list LEAK_ANY seq 10 permit 0.0.0.0/0 le 32
route-map ROUTE_ANY permit 10
match ip address prefix-list LEAK_ANY
router eigrp 1
eigrp stub connected summary static redistributed leak-map ROUTE_ANY
Need your advice, on this switch the current license is IPBase. But the show license all command tells me that the entservices has a license type PermanentRightToUse. if I activate the license using the command the enterprise license will be activated , this should allow me to use all features of EIGRP ?
