Description Stephen Warren 2005-03-19 19:06:23 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

Description of problem:
If I type this:

ip rule add priority 1000 fwmark 1 table 1

then it works fine. However, the resulting rule is not saved/restored across a reboot, so I have to manually add it back in.

"service iptables save" will save all the iptables stuff. Shouldn't it, or something similar, do the same for routing policy?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ip rule add priority 1000 fwmark 1 table 1
2. ip rule show. Note added rule
3. shutdown -r now
5. ip rule show. Note lack of added rule

Actual Results:  rule missing from rule table

Expected Results:  rule present in rule table

Iproute doesn't have a functionality like this and propably won't ever have. All
the ip * things are set by configuration scripts at the startup. Currently this
applies not only on `ip rule` but also the same behaviour you'll get with `ip
routes`, etc. None of the added data are stored. If you need to keep your
configuration, you have to dig in the bootup scripts and set the values there. 

Anyway, I will discuss this with other developers and maybe I'll add this to
feature requests.
