    Re: Edge router failover config

    how did you configure it
    why didn't it work
    what did you do to try and adjust it when you realised it didn't work.?

    You gotta give us a bit more than this, otherwise how are we supposed to help?

    If we start suggesting you do things you've already tried, you'll be annoyed because you've done that.
    If we don't suggest something super-simple like "have you tried turning it off and on again" because we assume you'd have done that, then we might start completely overanalysing things.

      Please we used the BGP ROUTE MAP PREPEND COMMAND,

      router bgp 65001
      neighbor 10.1.0.2 remote-as 65200
      neighbor 10.1.0.2 description Backup ISP
      neighbor 10.1.0.2 route-map prepend out
      !
      route-map prepend permit 10
      set as-path prepend 65001 65001 65001

        you're using BGP, with your own AS. That suggests you're a pretty big environment...?
        I would recommend speaking to cisco TAC for this one

          Hello Tehcamel,

          for now i want to configure IP SLA to be doing the fail over in the meantime as I look into the BGP prepend stuff.

          May I kindly know if IP SLA will work for me on my edge router with all the BGP stuff, we are an ISP

          thank you


          cheers

            uhm.. look. I don't want to be rude here....

            But it feels like knowing how to do this shit should be bread and butter for network admins at ISPs.

                Play nice, guys, or the big bad admin will have to take notice

                @orwills - Tehcamel made a valid comment (ok, one word could have been changed....) - an ISP would (IMHO) be expected to know how to manage their own network equipment. You haven't even said what kit you are using, or anything about the structure of your network, but left people to make assumptions.

                Going back to the original thread, have you asked Cisco support (do you have Cisco support)?

                    Thanks Blood. The above post has been left for someone to try something on. I should have left a note to that effect. Your eagle eyes and Flag are appreciated.
