i configure static route and i have rib failure in bgp !!

hi ,

i have the topology below

-network---------------------------------------router----------------------internet

on router i have bgp protocol ,

its only default router which is leardned from my isp .

in my router i confifure a default static route to my isp

in bgp table there is rib failure rout which is the default router and the reason is higher AD .

my question is  , does there any need for configuring manulally the static route ????

could it play any or at least positive rule in connection with me and isp ???

if not ,  im thinking to remove it .

If they're passing you a default route, then you don't really need to configure one. If you want to have one, you can create it with a higher AD so your BGP route takes precedence. If your peering goes down for some reason, but the internet link stays up the static default route can take over until the peering comes back up. Otherwise, there's really no need for the static route.

Hi,

As John said, if you have the default route from your ISP, you don't need any other static default route on your router.

In your case, its normal to get "rib-failure" on your router. because you have 2 default routes like below;

1-) Default-route from BGP with Distance 200

2-) Default-route you configured with Distance 1

The configured static-default-route with Distance 1 is higher AD (means better AD) so your router not using the BGP's static route.

There is no need to use static-default-route in your case. If your packets need to go to your ISP, and your ISP connection is down, its not matter to get static route from ISP or send the packets to a link that is not working.
