CCNA Passed - Q on CCNP Route - Redistribution

Mon Apr 23, 2012 5:06 pm

Hey all

So I finally passed my CCNA about 10 days ago and jumped straight away into the CCNP Route.

I am currently going through the Cisco Press FLG Route Guide and have come a little unstuck on understanding the Default Seed Metric for BGP. The book says the default is set to the IGP metric value? I don't quite understand what the IGP metric value is supposed to be, can someone explain?

Thanks

I think the table in this link will clarify:

When redistributing an IGP into BGP, the metric of routes being redistribuited are copied to the MED attribute in the BGP routes.

Thanks for the reply, spoke to a friend who has passed his CCNP and said it will make more sense once I read the BGP chapter
