Static Routes not working after RED-Update to Version 3.0.009

This isn´t really a question but rather some strange behavior I ran into when updating a customer´s RED-Devices from v3.0.008 to v3.0.009.


- Sophos XG2300 running SFOS 20.0.0 GA-Build222

- Multiple RED20 and RED60 Devices (6 total)

The routes to the networks behind the REDs were configured as static routes with a next hop ip, the out-interfaces weren´t configured. After updating the RED-devices, all but one remote network weren´t reachable eventhough the REDs reconnected to the firewall successfully after rebooting. After some troubleshooting we noticed that the route lookup for one of the remote networks showed that the traffic was being routed out the WAN-interface instead of the corresponding RED-interface.

After adding the out-interfaces to the static routes the traffic got routed correctly again.

Is this a known issue?
