  • beejay,

    The "5" is the default administrative distance for an EIGRP summary route.

    This will show up in the running-config/startup-config whether the 5 is actually typed when the summary is configured or not.

    c3640a(config-if)#ip summary-address eigrp 100 10.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 ?
      <1-255>   Administrative distance
      leak-map  Allow dynamic prefixes based on the leak-map
      <cr>

  • Thanks Darell.  So it means it doesn't have to be included in the configuration cos' I noticed that in all the examples I found on Cisco website, it's not included.  Is it optional?

  • beejay,

    From the ?:

    c3640a(config-if)#ip summary-address eigrp 100 10.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 ?
      <1-255>   Administrative distance
      leak-map  Allow dynamic prefixes based on the leak-map
      <cr>

    Note that at this point you can hit enter (<cr>), configure the AD for the summary, or add a leak-map.

    So, yes, the AD is optional, but it will show as 5 by default in show running-config/startup-config, or will show the different AD if it is manually configured.

    Thanks Darell.  So it means it doesn't have to be included in the configuration cos' I noticed that in all the examples I found on Cisco website, it's not included.  Is it optional?

     

  • Thanks once again Darell.  You are the man!
