IP SLA - Previous Route is not going away after applying Track Keyword

Hi All,


I have configured IP SLA on Cisco ASA running ios 9.1(3).


I have already a default route as follows:

route outside 1

Now I have applied IP sla.

route outside 1 track 100


Now I could see both statements in the running config.


route outside 1 track 100   <<<<<<<< SLA applied

route outside 1             <<<<< previous default route  still exists in the routing table. 

route outside2 254      <<<<< backup IPS route.


Could you please confirm following:

1. Is it a default behaviour of seeing both route statements.

2. Do we need to delete previous default route in the running config.

3. Is this a bug?


Thank You,

I can delete the old

I can delete the old statement. But in router, the same command is overwriting. Need to test this in the older ASA version. Currently ASAs are in 9.1
