yast and netstat doesn't match in suse

Hi all

I am helping fixing a set of old suse VMs and there is something seriously weird going with the networking.

My netstat -nr shows one set of routing commands and the yast/networking shows another set routes, routes that I know doesn't exist on our network.

Has anyone seen this before?

For example, in the attached screenshot, we can see yast shows I have no routes.
But here is the netstat -nr output:

hostname:~ # route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 0 0 0 eth10 * U 0 0 0 eth11 * U 0 0 0 eth12
link-local * U 0 0 0 eth10
loopback * U 0 0 0 lo
default UG 0 0 0 eth12

Are to assume that 'route' is an alias for 'netstat -nr'?

A quick search about yast and routing yielded:
If NetworkManager is used, nm-applet should be used to configure network options and the Overview, Hostname/DNS and Routing tabs of the Network Settings module are disabled. For more information on NetworkManager, see Section 26.0, Using NetworkManager.
Could this be the issue?

Hi grail

We are not using network manager. We are only using the if-up method.
