SSIM Static Routes to multiple network interfaces - How?

Created: 15 Oct 2012 • Updated: 07 Nov 2012 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have a SSIM architecture with three connected networks.

One is a plain subnet for storage - OK.

Another is a device communication & collection network, with the default route to Internet. Use Default Gateway config in Web GUI. OK

The third network has multiple subnets, and I expect my current performance issues are due to constant ICMP redirects as I cannot configure a static route path back to my management subnet not on the same subnet as SSIM interface, eg SSIM is on 10.20.30.x and my management is at 172.16.8.xx

I need to add a static route : route add gateway hops 2

sad  There is no config option in the Web GUI. How do I configure static routes ??

You need to configure the static routes at the operating systel level.

OK, researched on Google. For Redhat need to create file "route-eth2" in "network-scripts" containing the static route information, but the CLI account db2admin has no rights. couldn't login as root or symcmgmt - does root have yet another different password from the global one set at install ?

Tried to test on command line using "route" or "ip route" and had error "-bash: ip: command not found" presumably due to locked down system.

Specific SSIM guidance required please.

1- you need to do these commands as root but make sure you "su -" to allow path and profile loaded, else you won't find these command

2- to manually add a root in command line type :

route add -net netmask gw dev eth0

Make you you do a ifconfig and that the interface name is eth0.

These root will be lost at next boot, in general I add them to the :

/etc/rc.local script (it is like the startup folder from windows. Whatever commands you want to be ran at boot.

File /etc/sysconfig/static-routes was used. Not sure which script references this but the static routes are now present after SSIM restart.
