NSX OSPF and EIGRP redistribute

Hi,

Has anyone tested using NSX OSPF routing in conjunction with EIGRP and route redistribution in this scenario?

My main routing protocol is cisco EIGRP but I use NSX at the virtualization core and I want to know if these work well together (mainly I mean the redistribution is supported by NSX or not and does this senario works well or not)

Thanks

From a peering perspective NSX supports BGP and OSPF , so as long as we have a upstream device which is establishing routing with one of those protocols we are certainly good and those upstream devices can redistribute learnt EIGRP. routes to NSX tenants . Having different protocol for same tenants makes troubleshooting tedious and convergence can also differ End-End  based on the failure scenarios. So better test your use case and mark the caveats.

Thanks but I cannot change the whole network running EIGRP to OSPF or BGP

If redistribute works on NSX smoothly and flawlessly (which is my main question) I go for redistribute ..

any experience in this regard?

Have not implemented the same , but redistribute should work flawlessly and NSX will treat it as BGP/OSPF routes based on the protocol decision.

NSX does not support EIGRP redistribution since NSX doesn't support EIGRP, but you can do this in a physical switch(or router) which peers with Edge Service Gateway.

The switch(router) must running both OSPF and EIGRP.

As simple as this
