IV66285: NETSTAT -RN FALSELY SHOWS ROUTING ENTRY FOR FIRSTALIAS ADDRESS APPLIES TO AIX 7100-03
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
When an alias IP is added to an interface with firstalias keyword, routing entry is updated with the newly added alias IP address if it is in the same subnet as the existing IP address of the interface. When the 2nd alias IP of the same subnet is added, netstat -rn does not give the updated route entry with the new IP address as its gateway. But, outgoing packets use the correct source IP address.
netstat -rn is showing wrong route entry after adding the 2nd alias IP with firstalias keyword.
Extra condition is added to check if newly added gateway is different from the existing one. If it is different, then make the newly added IP as the gateway.
