Static Redistribution to BGP

L1 Bithead

Hi All,


I need some help/advice as I am unable to achieve the wanted results.



a) I have 2 PA firewalls sitting on separate DC operating independently.

b) I would like to add a static route on PA (DC1) and as long as the path monitoring for that IP is up the route should be added to the redistribution to BGP which is controlled using a prefix-list.

c) However if the path monitoring is down the server which owns that particular IP for instance would be activated on the second DC and it should then be redistributed to the BGP as the path monitoring will be up.


Above is the concept and has been configured however I am facing the below issue:


a) Even if the path monitoring is down somehow the route is being advertised out via BGP.



a) The route is added as a static and path monitoring configured in it.

b) Statis is then  redistributed to BGP.

c) There is a prefix list of what is advertised out.


Appreciate any is sights on this.
