Is there a best practice for enabling or disabling icmp redirects? Looks like I have redirects enabled and that caused a problem for a host server the other night. A line went down, the 6500 sent a redirect that was not really a valid route and when the line came up, the host still cached the redirected route, causing a problem. Are there any pro's and con's, although I'm leaning towards disabling redirects?

Redirects are about efficiency; avoiding the need to transit an extra device. If that's not a concern, turn if off.
(Of course there's the issue why the 6500 sent an invalid route redirect.)
