Re: one default gateway for all unix servers

Hi,

If you consider HP -UX,

1. add the gate way IP in the configuration file ( /etc/rc.config.d/netconf).

And restart the network ( sbin/init.d/net).

Regrds,

"one single default gateway for all unix server"

This statement above does not make much sense. I can tell your command of English language is not perfect but if you can try to explain what your current situation is and what you want it to be, it helps you get better answers.

Unix servers, 99.99% of the time, only have one SINGLE default gateway. To see what this gateway is, run the command :

netstat -rn | grep ^default

if you want to change this,

route delete default a.b.c.d

a.b.c.d is the ip address of your current default gateway. If you do not have one, you can skip this step.

route add default x.y.z.w 1

where x.y.z.w is the ip address of your new default gateway. Don't forget the "1" (digit one) at the end.

after you finish this you need to edit /etc/rc.config.d/netconf file and find the stanza defining the default route, closer to the end of the file, and replace the ip address of the default gateway with the one you defined as x.y.z.w above, save the file and exit.


Server restart is not needed but anyone who is connected to this server via a network connection, i.e., ssh, ftp, telnet and others, which means anyone but the guy on the console, more than likely, will lose their connections. So, you need to make this change from the console.

Last but not the least, please take time to assign points to the answers you received.
