Dear Colleagues, This message is to report a bug in the database software. If you send in an update of a route object in the classful net notation (e.g. 184.108.40.206) instead of the classless representation, you will get a warning message indicating that the route was rewritten to 127.255.255.255/24. You should find that you can lookup the original route object in the database. You should also find that you cannot lookup the new spurious route object, 127.255.255.255\24. You should do the following: (1) update your original route object using the classless notation; (2) delete the 127.255.255.255\24 object; you will find it in the acknowledgement you received from the first update. We will fix this problem as soon as possible. If you have anymore questions, please contact <ripe-dbm at ripe.net>. Regards, Ambrose Magee ____________________________ RIPE Database Administration.
