Description Need Real Name 2002-10-10 05:09:14 UTC
Description of Problem:
The /etc/sysconfig/static-routes file is not read properly when the
/etc/init.d/network script is launched and thus the static route entries are not
updated in the network routing table.

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


How Reproducible:
The static-routes file is not read irregardless of tab or space separation
within the file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add entries into /etc/sysconfig/static-routes file
2. service network stop. Service network start
3. netstat -rn.

Actual Results:
No entries from static-routes file seen in routing table.

Expected Results:


Additional Information:
A temporary fix to the problem was to copy an older
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes file from a RedHat 7.1 server onto
the 8.0 server. Ran service network restart and finally got the routing tables
to show up properly.

Comment 1 Need Real Name 2002-11-01 22:18:11 UTC
In addition, the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes script from RH7.3
functions correctly as well in RH8.0.
