I ran into an issue this morning where static routes on a certain device weren't being redistributed into an EIGRP process configured on the same device. I'd originally thought this was because the "default-metric" command (or it's route-map subcommand equivalent) wasn't in place. The issue ended up being due to licensure level on the device. It was a 4500X licensed for IPBase, and therefore auto-configured "eigrp stub connected summary" when we turned up the EIGRP process.
I fired up a GNS3 lab to check if redistribution from a static routing table into EIGRP needed the "default-metric" command, and routes redistributed just fine without it. From looking at different documents, they all say the default metric needs to be specified for redistribution from all routing processes spare another EIGRP or IGRP instance. Can anyone tell me why the routes are redistributed from static without a default-metric command, and what metrics are being used/why those metrics?
Thanks in Advance,
