You can add static routes to indicate where the system should send packets intended for certain IP addresses. The same procedures can be used to manage either IPv4 or IPv6 routes.

Warning: Ensure that the network route information that you are configuring is correct, as providing invalid route information might make the server inaccessible.
Note: IPv4 and IPv6 static routes are persisted by DNS/DHCP Server after a reboot or after performing a software upgrade.
Note: DNS/DHCP Server no longer permits configuration of duplicate static routes

DNS/DHCP Server v8.1.0 or greater doesn't permit static routes that duplicate the network address and netmask of IP addresses configured on physical interfaces. However, you can configure static routes that overlap existing IP addresses on physical interfaces. That is, network addresses that are larger or smaller than the IP addresses on eth0, or eth2.

To configure network routes:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click the name of a DNS/DHCP Server or xHA pair. The Details tab for the server opens.
  4. Click the server or xHA pair name menu button and select Service Configuration.
  5. Under the Routes section, click Add.
  6. Enter the following information:
    • Gateway IP—enter the IP address of the default gateway.
    • Network—enter the IP address of the network.
    • CIDR—enter the CIDR of the IP space for the specified network.
      Attention: You cannot configure IPv4 and IPv6 default routes through the Address Manager UI. Default gateways can be configured through the Administration Console.
  7. Click Add to add the network route and return to the Interfaces page, or click Add Next to add another network route.
