  1. Hi Rene,

    thanks a lot for your helpful explanation, I simulated your lab and found something that I need your explanation for it.

    when I leaked at R4, R2 calculated the metric of with 168 as below:

    R2#sh ip route isis 1
 is subnetted, 1 subnets
    i ia [115/168] via, 00:14:47, Ethernet0/2

    although R4 calculated it with 30 :

    R4#sh ip route isis
 is subnetted, 1 subnets
    i L2 [115/30] via, 00:50:55, Ethernet0/1

    the metric calculated with 40 at R2 when I configured the metric-style wide on all routers, I need your explanation for this please.


  2. Hi Walid,

    That’s a good question. I just booted this topology again and I see a metric of 40 on R2:

    R2#show ip route isis                         
    Gateway of last resort is to network
    i*L1 [115/10] via, 00:14:23, GigabitEthernet0/2
 is subnetted, 1 subnets
    i ia [115/40] via, 00:14:23, GigabitEthernet0/2
    i L1 [115/20] via, 00:15:16, GigabitEthernet0/1
    i L1 [115/30] via, 00:15:10, GigabitEthernet0/1
    i L1 [115/20] via, 00:15:16, GigabitEthernet0/2

    That’s without wide metrics:


    router isis
     net 49.1234.0000.0000.0002.00
     is-type level-1


    router isis
     net 49.1234.0000.0000.0004.00
     redistribute isis ip level-2 into level-1 route-map ROUTE_LEAKING

    What do you see in the database?

    R2#show isis database level-1 R4.00-00 detail 
    IS-IS Level-1 LSP R4.00-00

  3. Just to be picky: at the beginning there is a “We can deal with this by” that repeats.

    Thank you for all these lessons, they are really great!

  4. Hello Stuat

    Thanks for picking this up. You’re not being picky at all, we appreciate you bringing these things to our attention!


  5. Hi Stefanita,

    I always appreciate it when people report errors :+1: Just fixed this.
