Two default routes

Hi,

I seem to have two default routes on my Solaris 5.6 box. Everytime I reboot I see two routes appear in the boot sequence. Up until now, I have just been doing a "route delete" on the one I don't want. I discovered the second route when my box started sending every tenth transaction into never never land after a reboot. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can go to permanently remove this?

Thanks,
Dawn

There's only one in there and it's the one I want to get rid of. My question now is... where is the other one coming from?

Thanks.

Hi again,

Searched through everything that came up there and it didn't help. Do you know how "gated" works? I believe this is a similar type of OSPF implementation for a UNIX box? Is there a way I could verify if this is running?

Thanks again,
Dawn

ops, forgot to say that solaris may have enabled routed by default:

   ps -ef|grep route

Hi ahoffman...

Thanks for all of your suggestions and help. I didn't find either of those processes running. I am going to troubleshoot it more during the boot process later this week. I would like to award the points for your help so I will select one of the above answers.

Thanks again,
Dawn

Thanks again.

Still haven't located my "phantom" gateway but this location did get me started and the "good" gateway is in there.
