Routes being automatically added


I have two AIX 5.3 servers that are supposedly set up exactly the same. The problem I am having is on one of the servers, it seems dynamic routes are being added mysteriously and non-periodically. This only happens on one server and not the other. Also, there doesn't seem to be a specific event that occurs (such as reboot) that causes this to happen.

Any ideas as to why this could be happening?

Are you running a dynamic routing daemon such as routed etc on one of the servers? That could account for the behaviour you are seeing.
