So... We have 2 ISP's, one primary, and one backup. We want our default route to point to the primary (of course), but if it is no longer reachable, to failover to the backup ISP. BUT when the primary comes back online, will this configuration automatically shift the default gw back to the primary ISP? I can't find anthing that says it will, but I'm not sure. If not, then how can we make sure this happens?
It's my understanding that we can't use "qualified next-hop" because that is based on link-state, and our srx's are connected to our switches via Reth's, then to the ISPs.
I have used this method and it will fail back when the test is valid again.
Qualified next hop does rely on link failure and would only work if the next hop address is gone. This is frequently NOT the case with internet service outages where the next hop is visible to the SRX but upstream service is not working.
