The main key to maintaining and troubleshooting the redistribution within your network is to have a clear understanding of the network topology from both a physical and a logical perspective. The traffic flows—the peaks and lows in the traffic volume—are also important in truly understanding the connectivity issues within the network. From this vantage point, it is possible to interpret the output presented by the various tools available.
Most of the appropriate commands in tracking redistribution problems are ones that have been examined earlier. They include the following:
• show ip protocol
• show ip route routing protocol
• show ip eigrp neighbors
• show ip ospf database
In addition to these commands, the use of the such as trace and extended ping are also very useful.
