Multiple Static Routes To Same Destination

Hi Folks,

Can we configure multiple static routes to same destination with different next hop address ?

If yes then which path router will select ?

Thanks in advance

    You can also create what's known as a floating point static route, which is a backup route in the event the primary goes down.

    this is done by giving the backup static route a higher AD than the primary (1 by default) you just append a value at the end of the route command between 1 - 255

    ip route 1
    ip route 2

    so the second route will show up in the routing table when the primary goes down.

    Set the AD higher and it will be a backup route.
