How do I clear a stuck route from an ASA 5515-x?

I have a very unusual situation. I have an ASA 5515-x running Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 9.1(4)


I have a stuck static route that I cannot remove from the device. I have tried clear configure route BGPDMZ:

cerberus-01(config)# clear configure route BGPDMZ
cerberus-01(config)# exit
cerberus-01# 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 not set

S [1/0] via, BGPDMZ
S [1/0] via, BGPDMZ
S [1/0] via, BGPDMZ
C is directly connected, Inside64
C is directly connected, BGPDMZ
C is directly connected, Inside66
D [90/28416] via, 0:37:56, Intra-colo
C is directly connected, Intra-colo
S [1/0] via, BGPDMZ

It lives?


I tried no route....

I tried no route and then D/C power for 5 mins...


This route no longer exists in the conf yet it will not delete from routing table. Can anyone help me or do I need an exorcist?

Can you share me show running route output and show version output from your ASA

Do you perhaps have reverse

Do you perhaps have reverse-route injection configured on a VPN? That will populate the routing table in the manner that you are seeing.
