HELP!! Can someone please explain this to me......Lab1
I am in the middle of doing Volume II Lab 1 and I was doing the section dealing with EIGRP. I'm not stuck , but I was hoping someone could explain to me what just occured. In my mind, the impossible just became possible.
I was setting up EIGRP between R2 and SW2. Everything was going smoothly and both devices formed EIGRP neighbor relationships fine. I was verifying my configs so I did a "show ip route" command on SW2 and I got a message saying " ICMP redirect cache is not enable'. As far as I know, that means "ip routing" is not enable on the switch. I issued a "show run" command and i didn't see the "ip routing" statement that I should see which to me, also confirmed that "ip routing" was not enable.
Afterwards, I issued the "ip routing" command in global config mode and re-issued the "show ip route" command in privilage exec mode. I got the indication I expected to see which were actual connected routes etc. So I went back to global config mode and issues "no ip routing" to set things back to the original setting and the EIGRP neighbor relationships went down which is the "normal expected' indication. My problem is........how did the EIGRP neigbor relationship form in the first place without "ip routing" being enable?????
If anyone can provide me with an explanation I would appreciate it. As far as I know this is impossible.....but it really just happened. I'm assuming it could be a glitch, but....I dunno........
