Marshall -

In my option that is the best way to migrate.

In Cisco world (and probably all routers), routes are indexed by an
administrative distance. Static routes have an AD of 1, BGP-20, OSPF-110,
etc. Whichever one has the best distance, is the one that the router
installs in the routing table.

So, you can turn up OSPF all over, verifiy that they are adjacent, then
remove your static routes one by one.

Subject: [WISPA] OSPF routing question (nubie to OSPF)


I have a fully and manually routed network of 5-10 subnets.  I am about to
upgrade one of my backhaul links to 5G, and thought now might be a time to
get my feet wet with OSPF.  I clearly see how the manual routing tables are
not very scale-able.  Here is my one question before I spend too much time
including OSPF as part of the upgrade.

Can I run OSPF on a system that has my manual static routes, but OSPF is
attached to a new interface.  At the other end of the new interface, is an
OSPF interface on another manually routed system.
Would this work?  This way I could preserve network stability by changing
only one small part of the network and OSPF.  Later, I could remove some of
my manual routes and add OSPF to other routers.

Is this possible?  Is this a practical way to migrate away from static
routing?  Any better suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
