Unable to delete Stale/Obsolete statc routes in Cisco IOS


  1. Rock! thanks dude 🙂

  2. That is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

  3. Perfect, thank you!

    A word of warning to others about to try ‘no ip routing’ and ‘ip routing’. Your router will remove any routing-related config lines when you turn off IP routing! So, back up your configuration first – in my case it was a couple of static route definitions, and my OSPF configuration…

  4. It’s all due to ip redirects some where in the network.

    Check for ip redirect entries.

    ciscoswitch#sh ip redirects

    and if you can see entries, clear redirect

    ciscoswitch#clear ip redirects

    both your routing enties and redirect entries will go.
