Last updated on JUNE 22, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11.3 and later
Solaris x64/x86 Operating System - Version 11.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 Upon boot, the default route is not present, even though the system has a "default <IPaddr>" entry in /etc/inet/static_routes-DefaultFixed - and the DefaultFixed nwam profile was being used.

After boot, a restart or refresh of the network/routing-setup service caused the default route to be added.

The system involved was running 11.3.11.6.0.
