In this lesson we will focus on Huawei Floating Static Route and Default Route on Huawe Routers. We will give examples for How to configure Huawei Floating Static Route Configuration and Default Route Configuration. Let’s start.
You can test youself with Huawei HCIA Questions Page.
Floating Static Route is used for a Backup Static Route. A second route is defined with a high Preference and if the first link fails, then this floating static route is used as a Backup.
For our example, we will use the below topology. And as you can see, the Grey link will be configured as Backup to the destination (Floating Static Route).
You can download this configuration on Huawei eNSP Labs Page.
