Traceroute and backup traffic issue

Hello,

Why does traceroute choose "lan3" instead "lan7" to go to "10.40.78.69"? I have added routes (*) to force backup traffic go through lan7, but backup traffic and traceroute still go through lan3


server1:/># netstat -rn

Re: Traceroute and backup traffic issue

If you have multiple interfaces, you have to *tell* traceroute which one to use, it does not look at the routing table. The traceroute command is meant to show you what route is followed outside your server so you have to tell traceroute which interface to use as in
traceroute -i 10.40.47.138 10.40.78.69
Now for the backup traffic, which software are you using and is the server above the backup server or a backup client?

Re: Traceroute and backup traffic issue

Thanks, my question was specially about traceroute command. Backup team has succeded in configuring backup through backup network.
