Example of differing route entries produced by route and ip
Description of problem:
When viewing IPv6 routing tables using route and ip, different sets of routes are produced.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux jawa01.englab.brq.redhat.com 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5xen #1 SMP Tue Feb 19 07:33:17 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install iproute2 package
2. display ipv6 routes using route
/sbin/route -A inet6
3. display ipv6 routes using ip
/sbin/ip -6 route show
The two sets of IPv6 routing entries are different
The two sets of IPv6 routing entries should be the same.
I have attached some sample output from a RHEL 5 machine.
As with IPv4, IPv6 routes belong to a specific routing table. ip -6 route show will only display the routes found in the "main" table.
See `ip -6 rule` for a list of IPv6 tables being lookup up. Then dispaly the contents of each table using the command `ip -6 route show table <name>`.
You may found the routes you are lacking in the `local` table.
Please note that `route' may not display all routes as it relies on the routes being exported via /proc which is not done for all routes.
Do you still see different sets of routes?
Any news on this?
