I have been reading about the meaning of the command Default-Information originate, what I got from the explanation is:

When you configure a router under OSPF with default-information originate

then you are instructing the router to use its own default route. So it does not maintain a default learned from its neighbor.

when u add Always keyword:

then you are instructing the router to always and unconditionally use its own default route. So it does not maintain a default learned from its neighbor.

===But I am not sure in which case this command needs to be brought up

Any help ?

thanks
