I need to change the distance for a specific route being exchanged via iBGP from 200 to something lower than eigrp but It has to be specific to only one network.

    Accepted Solution

    Consider below scenario i have done .
    Three loopback used at routerB & Router c

    only loopback0 is used to reduce AD and rest to are learned via EIGRP

    ROuter A -------IBGP------RouterB
    Router C

    IBGP-EIGRP#sh running-config | s bgp
    router bgp 4755
     no synchronization
     bgp log-neighbor-changes
     neighbor remote-as 4755
     distance 70 REDUCE_AD
     no auto-summary
    ip access-list standard REDUCE_AD
    router eigrp 5
     no auto-summary

    Gateway of last resort is not set

    D [90/156160] via, 00:02:23, FastEthernet0/1 is subnetted, 1 subnets
    B [70/0] via, 00:03:11 ----------------------------------Only one gets lowerAD. is subnetted, 1 subnets
    C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/1 is subnetted, 1 subnets
    D [90/156160] via, 00:03:21, FastEthernet0/1 is subnetted, 1 subnets
    C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
