How to Add a Permanent Static Route in AIX 4.3

Published by at 9:11 pm under Aix

To add a permanent static route in AIX, add the route command in the startup file /etc/rc.net:

AIX Server.root / $ route add -net -netmask

or use Smitty, AIX text interface to perform global system management (preferred):
AIX Server.root / # smitty
-> Communications applications and Services
-> Further Configuration
-> Static Routes
-> Add a Static Route
Then type in the new static route settings.

    This will not persist upon reboot as the output to smit/smitty shows a route add:

    The command /usr/sbin/route add -net -hopcount 0 -netmask 0xff000000 -static x.x.x.x

    to persist a route, you must run chdev (or smitty chdev)

    But thanks for the info, it might be helpful for some of us
