    Posted Sep 21, 2022 12:51 PM

    Is it an issue to have an IP route and IP DGW setup on the same switch?

    I have layer 3 routing setup with RIP enabled.   Will there be a conflict, and do in need to remove the DGW?

    Ip default-gateway
    ip route
    ip routing
    snmp-server community "public" unrestricted
    ip address dhcp-bootp
    router rip
    redistribute connected

    As far as I know, the ip default-gateway is used in non-ip routing mode; the ip route is used in routing mode.

    With routing mode enabled, I think you can remove the ip default-gateway as it is not used. It won't hurt either, but may be confusing when someone reads the config, so probably better to take it out.
