What is the significance of the number 4294967295 as shown in the output?
- It represents the unreachable metric for EIGRP.
- It represents the administrative distance for EIGRP.
- It represents a reachable metric for the given network.
- It represents one of the link characteristics that EIGRP uses to calculate the metric.
The value 4294967295 in the debug ip eigrp output represents the unreachable metric for EIGRP. This means that the network has become unavailable and cannot be reached. In this output, the M represents the local metric, and the SM represents the metric that was reported by the neighbor that advertised the network to the local router.
The administrative distance (AD) for internal EIGRP is 90.
The link characteristics that are used in the EIGRP calculation are shown following the dash after the M and SM values (1657856 4294967295). By default, EIGRP only uses bandwidth and delay in its calculation.
