OSPF redistribution of static route

OSPF redistribution of static route



I have an interesting situation. I have a Active/Active cluster where I use arp load sharing and fail over for HA VIP which is also the DGW.

So for


.2 would be pa-a

.3 would be pa-b

.1 would be the HA VIP


The way the PA's do active active is they install a route on of of the pa's for the VIP.   even for arp load sharing..  They have their reasons. They are usually /32's.


I have OSPF running on my nework.  For some reason OSPF is picking up the /32 and adding it to the OSPF network.


Now I am trying to work out how the /32 gets added to the OSPF network. as it shows up in the routing table as a static not a connected !


So connected I can understand I have OSPF passive on the interface, but why the static route.

I do have redist rules but I apply filters on those rules for specific routes only.



so part 1 how to stop the adding ... not sure..


part 2, how to stop it advertising it!

So new redistribution rule with no redist set.

If I set it as static and the ip address it doesn't filter it out.


I'm thinking I need to make it OSPF filter and use as the tag.


Any thoughts or suggestesions on #2 ?
