This won't work in all situations.. for example it would be difficult to determine an XR2 from an XR9 using this method..

OSPF redistribute default route rc14

I'm having trouble with OSPF redistribute default route on rc14.. I upgraded my core to rc14 and now redistribute default route doesn't work. I've rebooted all neighbors and it will not redistribute it. After downgrading back to rc13 it starts working again. Can anyone else confirm? Thanks, Gerard
