Give First Priority to OSPF and Second Priority to Static Route.

Dear Folks

we have two Main Sites namely A and B, Both A and B are having separate connection to a Global Network in singapore which we use Like, B lan users will connect to Singapore through the Global connection available in A and when the Global connection in A fails the Global connectivity should happen through the alternate Global connection from B.

  ryt Now this failover is not happening and we are enabling a static route manually.

  there is a P2P connection between A and B and Routes are learned through OSPF. 

  Now i sshould make this failover happen automatically. i dont have SD-WAN deployed.

  the Route which I am enabling now manually should happen automattically. please suggest me How we can do it.

 

Regards

sandy

Hi,

 

Just create a static route with higher administrative distance than OSPF routes (defaut 110), like 250.

Once OSPF goes down (whatever reason), the firewall will choose a lower priority route (the static route you create).
