Description

I was adding static route on disabled interface and got the following message:
The following input errors were detected:
The gateway "10.66.0.99" is a different Address Family than network "10.66.10.0".

As you can see from the message itself, network and gateway are in the same family. I've tracked that down to the skipping of disabled interfaces in return_gateways_array function.
Possible solutions:
  • change error message to something like: "The gateway "10.66.0.99" is a different Address Family than network "10.66.10.0" or interface disabled"
  • remove skipping of disabled interfaces
  • automatically disable gateways on disabled interfaces

fixed

the GW will be disabled if the interface was disabled.

if there was a static route the GW will disappear if the interface is disabled.

I'm still able to replicate this in 22.05 and 23.01. And in 2.7.0.a.20230215.0600

Tested a gateway created directly on the interface and a gateway created separately in the subnet.

In both cases the gateway remains enabled after disabling the interface. If you then try to create a static route via that gateway the confusing error message is shown.

The error can still appear when a dynamic gateway exists for the disabled interface:

The gateway "dynamic" is a different Address Family than network "10.0.50.0".

Now works with dynamic gateways. For reference, saving a static route to an "inactive' dynamic gateway shows the following in the system logs:

Sep 21 18:04:56     php-fpm     1217     /system_routes.php: Gateway, NONE AVAILABLE
Sep 21 18:04:56     php-fpm     1217     /system_routes.php: Gateway, NONE AVAILABLE
Sep 21 18:04:56     php-fpm     1217     /system_routes.php: Static Routes: Gateway IP could not be found for 10.0.51.0/24 

Additionally, re-enabling the interface correctly updates the routing table with the static route.
