Re: routing table showing rubbish

There was a problem while you installed the xport patch, and user level part of the patch doesn't match with kernel level one.

just check with

what /usr/bin/netstat

what /stand/vmunix |grep -e  ip.c -e ip_ire.c


one is probably showing 11.11 LR and the other PHNE_.. something.


usually in that state ndd -get /dev/ip ip_ire_status works well.

swremove PHNE_.....

Post output. You may need to boot the system to remove this patch. Prepare a maintenance window.

Re: routing table showing rubbish

  netstat is from a patch after TOUR merge, ( optional stack)

when kernel side is with pre-TOUR merge.



It is probable that you had a problem while generating the kernel, you should

check swinstall.log/swagent.log to see any error and fix them ( for instance available space on /stand)


you should check what /usr/conf/lib/lib*net.a /usr/conf/lib/libuipc.a to see if library are installed

and kernel was not regened.

if it is the case you can try to regen the kernel with a mk_kernel; kmupdate; shutdown


if the library are well the one in the kernel then you need to recover to a safe&consistant patch level.

multiple possibility;

swremove PHNE_36125 or next


I think probably the best would be to install superceding patch for instance

PHNE_39386 & deps



PHNE_36125 had patch warning
