AIX add route with subnet


hi,
I want to add below entry in netstat/ routing table on AIX.
160.118.106.128/26 as destination.

How can I add that ? I tried to add that using smitty mkroute but smitty doesnt allow me to add /26.

Please let me know.

So you tried format netmask=255.255.255.192 instead?

These egzamples below works:

// make sure that inet0 exists, if not, create it
Code:
# lsdev -C -S1 -F name -l inet0 || mkdev -t inet 
inet0
// add route
Code:
# chdev -l inet0 -a route=net,-hopcount,0,-netmask,255.255.192.0,-static,10.176.128.0,10.149.3.254
inet0 changed
// remove route
Code:
# chdev -l inet0 -a delroute=net,-hopcount,0,-netmask,255.255.192.0,-static,10.176.128.0,10.149.3.254
inet0 changed
The smitty does exacly those commands above.

Thanks guys,

I am able to do that with smitty using the info you provided.

Now I need to remove an unwanted entry which was added while playing with smitty.

160.118.109.192/26 6.2.63.43 UGS 0 0 en2 - -

but getting error as below:

Method error (/usr/lib/methods/chginet):
0514-009 Cannot delete an object from the device
configuration database.
0821-216 chginet: Cannot delete route (net,160.118.109.192,6.2.63.43) from CuAt.


Any ideas?
