redistribute [bgp|connected|kernel|static] {metric <0-16777214>|metric-type [1|2]}


redistribute [bgp|connected|kernel|static] {metric <0-16777214>|metric-type [1|2]}
bgp Redistributes all BGP routes by OSPF
connected Redistributes all connected interface routes by OSPF
kernel Redistributes all routes that are neither connected, nor static, nor dynamic
static Redistributes static routes by OSPF
metric <0-16777214> The following keywords are common to the ‘bgp‘, ‘connected‘, ‘kernel‘, and ‘static‘ parameters:
  • metric <0-16777214> – Optional. Specifies the OSPF metric value for redistributed routes.
  • <0-16777214> – Specify a value from 0 - 16777214.
metric-type[1|2] The following keywords are common to the ‘connected‘, ‘kernel‘, and ‘static‘ parameters:
  • metric-type [1|2] – Optional. Sets the OSPF exterior metric type for redistributed routes
    • 1 – Sets the OSPF external type 1 metrics
    • 2 – Sets the OSPF external type 2 metrics
