To view the existing IP routes, navigate to Network Configuration > IP Routes.

Existing IP routes

The following table describes the fields on this page:

Field / Item Description
Cluster Node Routing When this option is disabled (default behavior), the configured routes are propagated to all nodes in a cluster. If this option is enabled, it is possible to configure different routes for each node in a cluster.
If an EVS fails over to a node that is missing a required route, network traffic can no longer reach the required destination.
Clicking on the enable/disable button will result in IP routes being removed from the server. This may lead to an inability to manage the system and a loss of access to end users.
Destination For a Network route, this field displays the IP address and Address Prefix Length of the destination. For a Host route, this field displays an IP address only.
Gateway This field displays the gateway IP address of the route.
Type This field displays the type of route, which can be Host, Network, or Gateway.
Creation Type A route is either static or dynamic. Static indicates a manually created route and dynamic indicates a route created by a switch.
MTU This is the Maximum Transmission Unit which is the largest size Ethernet frame that the server can send for the route.

Note: Fields that are not required for a route type are grayed out and cannot be configured.
