For a network that was OSPF + MPLS + VPLS and now L2 bridged and PPPoE using Vlans for public ip's ! - OSPF is now used for management
Can static routes co exist with dynamic routes coming from OSPF?

Of ourse it can. it's all about administrative distance of a static route over ad dynamic one. For example, AD of OSPF is 110 and exernal EIGRP has 170. You can "win" both with only 1 to increment. For example you can manage reserve static route for ospf with 111 and 171 with eigrp.

Thanks for your reply!
On re-reading my question I will have to rephrase,
Static routing for L2 bridged and Dynamic for OSPF, I want the options that if static routing is unreachable that OSPF dynamic routing will take over until static is reachable?

Of course! =) Just manage administrative distance of your static routes conversely =)
