Implementing eigrp

I will be implementing EIGRP into our current environment that's currently on static to EIGRP.

Is there anything that I need to take into consideration? A lot of current static routes will need to remain. We have multiple sites and just this one will have EIGRP and all the other will remain on just static.

I am planning to add all my VLANS into the EIGRP and leave some static routes that pertain to site-to-site tunnels. Could leaving the static routes in, could cause any issues?
Any recommendations? suggestions? I am also thinking about configuring EIGRP on my asa's at this location as well.

Hi,

Without network topology and additional details, it's hard to provide an answer.

i currently have setup ip sla with failover on the main switch in the middle so if the primary asa fails, traffic is re-routed to secondary  I don't have failover configured on the asa at this time.

Hi,

You want to use EIGRP in order to remove all statically defined router around your access and distribution switchs? right?

I propose to keep the ASA and other router with actual configuration and apply the EIGRP only on the switchs since you have manually configuration regarding traffic route to ASA and I guess you have NAT configured so behind the ASAs every thing considered public.

Here is a guide that may help you regarding your setup.

Regards and good luck.

and the static routes I have on the switches that are in regards to ipsec tunnels can remain? or do I need to somehow configure eigrp to know about these routes?
Salah Eddine ELMRABETTechnical Lead Manager (Owner)Commented:
Hi,

The tunnels will ends at ASA side, so you need to keep it in static (I guess in the main Core switch in the middle) and configure redistribut static in eigrp router config.
