If I have two routes to a remote office, A & B.

How can I force EIGRP to use route A as a primary route, and only use route B in
case of overload or breakdown of route A?

Thank You,

You can either lower the bandwidth or increase the delay on the "backup" interface to increase it's metric in EIGRP.

Use the "delay" command:

interface <type/number>
delay 2000   <--a higher value than what is configured.
