You  have reached the number of maximum supported static route entries on the platform . You can try deleting any unused ones or have some of these routes learn dynamically using a routing protocol if possible .

Re: ip satic routes problem: "maximum number of static routes exceeded!"

Thx for your reply. I knew this. But there is a undocumented command to extend the maximum number of static routes. I could not find any information about it, but i know it's possible to change it. Our Brocade systems engineer told me this, but he is in vacation since a long time.

We use a FastIron SuperX-PREM. Thx!

Is this what you are looking for ?

For example, to increase the capacity of the IP route table, enter the following commands.

Brocade(config)#system-max ip-route 120000

Brocade(config)#write memory

Brocade(config)#exit

Brocade#reload

Hi all,

    That is the correct procedure.  Though the command is not a hidden command. Please be aware that changing the values in the system-max command will almost in all cases require a reboot to take effect.

Thanks

Michael.
