Well, I was unable to resolve this issue.  All the command I tried to remove
the route failed.  It had been suggested that I add a route to the net and
that would allow me to delete the host route, but this just left me with two
routes that I was unable to delete.  ifconfig <int> down;ifconfig <int>
unplumb got rid of the bad routes, but  they returned the moment I brought
up the interface.

Further research shows people hitting this issues on Ultrix, digital Unix,
SGI's, and all flavors of Solaris.  

My finaly resolution turned out to be a reboot(machine is in stonbeat

We had an critical ticket open with Sun with no resolution.  They kept
suggesting different version of route delete <foo> to no avail.

another quick question. It has been suggested that I ifconfig sbif1:1 down
the interface.  If i do this, will i loose the interface configuration?

Sorry i neglected to post the OS version, it is
# uname -a
SunOS gsun401 5.6 Generic_105181-23 sun4u sparc SUNW,UltraSPARC-IIi-cEngine

the interface is a configured interface on the machine...

For the record, these are all the commands i've tried...

route delete host -interface
route delete host
route delete net
route delete
route delete -host
route delete -netmask -interface

all report not in table, here is the table with a -nvr switch

  Destination             Mask           Gateway          Device Mxfrg  Rtt
Ref Flg  Out  In/Fwd
-------------------- --------------- -------------------- ------ ----- -----
--- --- ----- ------        sbif1:1  1500*
0   3 UH      19     

route delete -netmask -interface bad value

Have you tried:

route delete host -interface
route delete host

let me know if this fixes your problem.

I ahve an issue where a I added a route to a box and now cannot delete it.
the command I used to enter the route was

route add host -interface

route delete -interface  fails with .....

delete host gateway not in table

in fact, all of the following command fails the same way...

route delete host
route delete net
route delete

and many forms of the same all yield

delete host gateway not in table

I had a glimmer of hope and even tried.... 

route change host
change host gateway

which still yielded...

Routing Table:
  Destination           Gateway           Flags  Ref   Use   Interface
-------------------- -------------------- ----- ----- ------ ---------         UH       3     19  sbif1:1

in my routing table...

Any thoughts.  Usenet and archive searches for this issue provided no
solutions, although many people have been hit by this.  It seems that I am
at the point where the only way to get rid of this route is a reboot.
