HI,

I advise to use routing protocoll for primary lines, and floating route to isdn:

route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x 200

where is the 200 is a metric, you need to advertise default route with routing protocoll!

Best regards,
Istvan

You can define ip sla for your primary link and you can track your primary link and you can configure floating route with greater administrative distance for your ISDN Link...so if primary link will go down then sla will track it and that particular route will go down and your isdn network will come into effect.
You will configure sla in both end router.

for your reference

Let me know if it solves your purpose.

If you have a switch between main server and two routers in head office, then it is better to configure HSRP toward the main server (with tracking of route to IP subnet of workstations in Branch Office), and IGP (EIGRP, OSPF) on the WAN segment. Also you may use teaming on the server interfaces, for high availability, and use standby IP of HSRP group as default gateway of main server. http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/internetworking/case/studies/cs009.html
