EIGRP autosummarization

I am trying to understand this practice question on cisco Adv test:

 10.10.10.0/24----E0 RTR1 S0----172.16.10.0/24---S0 RTR2 S1---192.168.20.0/24---S1 RTR3---E0

RTR1 config:
router eigrp 4
  network 10.0.0.0
  network 172.16.0.0
  no auto-summary

Auto-summarization is disabled on RTR1 but is enabled on RTR2 and RTR3. Which
two routes will be seen on the routing table of RTR3:
A. 10.0.0.0/8
B. 10.10.0.0/16
C. 10.10.10.0/24
D. 172.16.0.0/16
E. 172.16.0.0/24
F. 172.16.10.0/24

A & D

When auto-summary is enabled, routes will be summarized to the classfull boundaries.

10.10.10.0/24 is advertise by RTR1, even RTR2 have enabled auto summary, as the 10.10.10.0/24 is learn from neighbor, so auto summarization will not modify it and advertise to others by default

The answer provided with the question bank...

Could it be that since the two interfaces on RTR1 are directly connected, the no auto summarization  advertises them as what they are tp both RTR2 & RTR3.??

You gave the output on R2, what is 'sh ip route' on R3??

I think you are right if command 'no passive int' is defined on R1. I guess default is passive interface...

Sorry, didn't realize that you had named them differently.. the last one does have the interface address in routing table.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Now I see what's going on. The auto-summary feature only works on directly connected routes. Since R2 learned the 10.10.10.0 route, it won't summarize when it sends it to R3.

And since R2 is connected to the 172.16.10.0 network, it will summarize that to R3.

"Since R2 learned the 10.10.10.0 route, it won't summarize when it sends it to R3."

How did R2 learn 10.10.10.0/24 route, it is not directly connected to R2, 172.16.0.0/16 is connected to R2 and R1.

>How did R2 learn 10.10.10.0/24 route,

R1 advertised it via EIGRP.

totaramAuthor Commented:
I see... R1 is no-auto summary and the other subnet (172.16.0.0) is directly connected, so auto-summary :-)

Correct.
