    Hi everyone.

     

    Please consider the following example:

    H1-10.10.10.1 -10.10.10.2 R1-f0-12.12.12.1-----12.12.12.2 fo R2--20.20.20.2--20.20.20.2

    R1 :

    set routing-option static route 20.20.20.2/32 next-hop 12.12.12.2

    We want to acheive following goal:

    R1 must retain the static route 20.20.20.20/32 in routing table even if next hop or interface f0 on R1 is down.

     

    I am looking at " retain" option below, but not sure if it will do the trick as it says it is applicable if  Routing process on R1 shuts down. Am i reading it correctly?

     

    Thanks and have a nice weekend!!

    [edit routing-options static (defaults | route)]

    Description

    Configure statically configured routes to be deleted from or retained in the forwarding table when the routing protocol process shuts down normally.

    • retain—Have a static route remain in the forwarding table when the routing protocol process shuts down normally. Doing this greatly reduces the time required to restart a system that has a large number of routes in its routing table.

    if the interface goes down, the route will be deleted from the routing-table (atleast what I am seeing in my LAB)

    The option you are looking for is passive.  This will change the route to reject keeping it in the table when the interface is down.
