issues with netconf after a make_recovery

[ Edited ]


Running HPUX 11.31 on a blade server. 

We just did a network ignite, and afterwards we could not connect via Secure Shell, but could ssh from another server on the local network.


After some looking, we noticed that our backup route in netconf was set as follows.








We changed the ROUTE_DESTINATION to




and rebooted and it worked, but we noticed during the boot the netconf file was set back to what it was before. (default). 


After about 45 mins, we lost connection to the server again. 

We set netconf back again, rebooted and it worked again for about 45 mins.


ONce again the netconf file was set back to the "default" setting as originally mentioned.


any idea why this is being changed in reboot and why this drops after about 45 mins?


also, when it is not working netstat -r hangs...


netstat -rn

any assistance would be appreciated.

Re: issues with netconf after a make_recovery

I think we've resolved this.  there was a DHCP set to "1" instead of "0" in netconf.  Not sure why or how.
