Set a default seed metric

Under any routing protocol, you can specify a default seed metric to be used for redistribution instead of, or in addition to, setting metrics on a per-protocol basis. A seed metric is a protocol-independent feature of the Cisco IOS Software that is usually configured when redistributing into distance-vector protocols.

R2(config)# router ospf 1
R2(config-router)# default-metric 10000

Verify the new metric in the R3 routing table. It might take some time for the new metric to propagate.
R3# show ip route ospf
