Service Console losing default route

Hey Guys

I've got a weird issue where my service console (vswif0) loses it's default gateway...

I've tried configuring it in the VI Client and in /etc/sysconfig/network but it just will not set... I have to manually add a route as "route add default gw 10.0.0.1".

But even then when I reboot or restart the network service, the gateway is dropped.

My /etc/sysconfig/network file looks like:

NETWORKING=yes

HOSTNAME=host.domain.com

GATEWAY=10.0.0.1

Other things to note...

vswif0 is configured as part of a port group "Service Conole" with a vLanID of 4000

Any advice would be much appreicated.

Andrew.

Hello mcdmagix,

you should try the following:

update your /etc/sysconfig/network file to :

HOSTNAME=host.domain.com

GATEQYDEV=vswif0

GATEWAY=10.0.0.1

NETWORKING=yes

Thank you dmaster

Although your suggestion didn't work, it did prompt me to have a look in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-vswif0

I noticed that the like NETWORK= was actually set to the completely wrong subnet... oopps. :smileygrin:

The default route is now setting correctly after a restart..
