Static routing

A static route directs outgoing client traffic to a specified gateway based on the IP address of the client connection.

You configure static routes by IP address pool, and each route applies to all nodes that have network interfaces as IP address pool members.

You might configure static routing in order to connect to networks that are unavailable through the default routes or if you have a small network that only requires one or two routes.

If you have upgraded from a version earlier than OneFS 7.0.0, existing static routes that were added through rc scripts will no longer work and must be re-created.
