Lab Tip: Check For Redistribution On A Device

This can be done by many methods, but prefer to use “show run | i router|redist” to see if there is any redistribution currently on the device.  Since all routing processes include the term “router” and all redistributions include…well “redistribution”, this command will show you which – if any – redistributions are currently configured on a device:

Rack1R6(config)#do sh run | i router|redist
router eigrp 10
router ospf 100
router-id 150.1.6.6
redistribute connected subnets route-map CONN->OSPF

In this case we can see that we are redistributing connected routes into OSPF using a route-map.  Good to know before beginning mutual redistribution.

Rack1R5#sh run | i router|redist
router eigrp 100
router ospf 100
router-id 150.1.5.5

In this case we can see that there is no redistribution currently occurring on this device.

I run through this check any time I am about to configure redistribution.  I also note any redistributions on my lab topography, but it’s always good to “measure twice, cut once” 🙂
