d* Route on show route (Cisco ASA)

Hi Experts,

I'm a bit confused on why, when I issue a "show route" command on my Cisco 5510 ASA the default route shows:      d*

Please see below for the output.

There seem to be no small letter "d" in the codes below.

Why am I getting this kind of default route?

Result of the command: "sh route"

Codes: C - connected, S - static, I - IGRP, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP

       D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area

       N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2

       E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E - EGP

       i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area

       * - candidate default, U - per-user static route, o - ODR

       P - periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is x.x.x. to network 0.0.0.0

C    a.a.a.a 255.255.255.0 is directly connected, inside

C    y.y.y.y 255.255.255.248 is directly connected, outside

d*   0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 [1/0] via x.x.x.x, outside

Is it not the default route being received via DHCP on your WAN interface?

Hi,

I think this is a default route learned via DHCP with ip address dhcp setroute command.

Alain, Pompey,

Thank you for the reply. That clears my confusion.

May I know if this d* route is given priority over S*?

Hi,

I don't think so as these are both static routes with an AD of 1.

d* Route on show route (Cisco ASA)

Hi Alain,

I also thought it would be the same because both have an AD of 1.

If so, what would be the best practice, if I have 2 routes going to the internet?

Interface1 - is learned via DHCP from ISP, the other  interface2 - PPPoE from ISP?

Should I enable set-route on both interfaces?

Or should I only enable it on the active interface that's is forwarding the traffic?

Thank you.

Regards,

Jemel
