Description francesco.zuliani 1999-03-05 14:01:22 UTC
Failure to add static-routes. In file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes the command "linuxconf --hint routing $1" fails to give correct results, so that static-routes specified in /etc/sysconfig/static-routes are not loaded. Resolution: comment out part regarding linuxconf in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-19 22:27:59 UTC
what incorrect results does linuxconf give?
Comment 2 Anonymous 1999-03-20 16:59:59 UTC
the command "linuxconf --hint routing eth0" simply return nothings, but then this prevents "/etc/sysconfig/static-routes" file to be read and further static routes to be added.

Are you running a 2.0 or a 2.2 kernel?
Comment 4 Anonymous 1999-03-23 10:24:59 UTC
I'm running RedHat 5.2 + updates and kernel 2.0.36. I also noticed that the command "linuxconf --hint routing" does return the following : IPV4ROUTING="false" DEV_RECONF_ROUTES="" BUT as soon as one puts any argument (here eth0, but it seems unrelevant): linuxconf --hint routing eth0 then linuxconf fails to give any output and so doing prevents adding of static routes written in /etc/sysconfig/static-routes

I can't reproduce this with linuxconf 1.14, and we've received conflicting reports that linuxconf IS giving output from /etc/sysconfig/static-routes (output that used to work, but failed with a newer set of network utilities) so I think that this is specific to Francesco's configuration. Linuxconf is probably looking at the device configuration and is not able to find a device to which the static route applies. Unless the gateway is directly reachable on one of the local networks, linuxconf will not add a static route, for example. So without further information, I have to consider this a configuration problem on the remote machine. I think I would want to have an archive of /etc/sysconfig/static-routes and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg* in order to examine this any further. ------- Email Received From Jacques Gelinas <jack.ca> 03/24/99 13:15 -------
