    Question Gateway problem....cannot save in the settings after reboot!


    I have a 3Com 24-port unmanaged switch...
    Well the issue is....having all our servers cannot save the gateway settings after reboot.

    We did all sort of ways such as
    - netconfig
    - add gw
    - edit eth0
    ....etc etc..

    But it still doesnt save the gateway after reboot.

    Currently we just put a command to add gw once it reboot and edit works..

    But i try on other networks, it doesnt have any issues by using netconfig.

    Can anybody tell me is this weird or is normal?

    If is different depending on the OS you are using. If you are using Linux look for a file called /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and add GATEWAY=''. Replacing that IP with your correct gateway. Other files that control this are /etc/defaultrouter (Solaris) or /etc/rc.conf (FreeBSD) depending on your OS.
