static route issue

Dear community,


after upgrading our PA220 to PAN-OS 9.0 our static routes are not working anymore and during a commit we recieve the error massage


  • Static route default_route_to_WAN next hop IP is not in subnet of outgoing interface ethernet1/1
  • (Module: routed)

Here is the configuration of our default route to the internet:

What am i missing? Any help in this regard is highly appreciated.


Thank you in advance.

Re: static route issue

the only thing you are missing is the oddities  of these Gweneth Paltro's.


This is a new check introduced in 9.0 part of the new feature where FQDN can be used as "Next Hop."

I think it tries to resolve the IP to an IP... if you get what i mean....


NOTE: This is only a warning and does not cause the commit to fail.
