You need route-maps to change the type of the OSPF route generated by the redistribution of static routes. However, if I'm not completely wrong, this has been introduced with 10.08.xxxx versions. Can you confirm that "redistribute static route-map XXXX" is not available in your software version?
The other question would be why you simply don't advertise/don't redistibute the route in question in area 1? Do you use any kind of summarization on the area border?
Please share a bit more information and/or a diagram of your situation in order to discuss the options available.

Subject: AOS-CX How do I redistribute static as a type 1 external instead of the default type 1?
How do I redistribute static as an OSF type 1 external instead of the default type 2?
I have an interim situation with 2 subnets on a single circuit. 1on area 1 and the other on Area0. We are migrating to Area0, but not all remote sites are off of area 1.
There is a second circuit and that is where I want to move atll the traffic to. The External routes remain on the area1 interface. Route selection seems to prefer the higher Area ID foir the external type 2 routes. All of the interfaces are costed to prefer the new area0 circuit and I can move the majority of traffic to this lowest cost circuit, except for the External type 2. If I redistribute as Type 1 than the route selection should utilize the interface costs. Can this be done on XL.10.06.0101?
