We added a new route in our Sun Solaris server (route add x.x.x.x y.y.y.y) but it was not saved, when the server was rebooted the route was lost.

What is the command in Solaris to save the network changes to become permanent?

Thanks.

the "route -p" command will add the routes to /etc/inet/static_routes

Hi, I just type "route add xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy" where XXX is the destination IP and YYY is the router. I did not edit any config files.

so now do I need to:
1. "route delete xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy" and then
2. "route -p add xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy"

Is this correct?

Thanks.

route -p only was only introduced with later versions of solaris 10. Routes are stored in /etc/inetd/static_routes but this file is volatile (subject to change in subsequent releases of solaris. If you're not running a version of solaris 10 that support static routes, you need an init script. Example here:
