Ive a DMVPN tunnel between two cisco routers .. One is hub, other is spoke ... Now, am advertising the tunnel subnet and the inside lan subnet of both sides using EIGRP. Now, question is that i dont want to see all those EIGRP (D) routes in spoke site that are advertised by hub site, instead I want to make my spoke as eigrp stub ... if i go into
router eigrp 1
net x.x.x.x
eigrp 1 stub

It doesnt work .. .What do I need to make my spoke as eigrp stub !

The stub feature in EIGRP what it really does is to announce to his neighbors that this is a stub router and when a network goes down they should not query the stub router for information.

If you want your spoke router to have less routes in the routing table but also have full knoledge of the network in tge hub site, then you should consider to perform route summarization in the hub router.

in your spoke router go to
router eigrp 1
no auto-summary

int ...
ip summary address ....

the commands above you should give them in the HUB ROUTER and not in the SPOKE ROUTER.

Sorry for the mistake!!!!!
