vCenter – Adding persistent route.

Now this is easy.  As vCenter uses SUSE Linux, all you have to do is:

vi /etc/

and add your route statement into it: eth0

The statement is as follows:

<network> <gateway> <netmask> <eth-device>

That is it.

I also found that the following works:

# vi /etc/sysconfig/network/ifroute-eth0

(supposing the interface is eth0)
For every route add a line with the following format:
<TargetNetwork> <GatewayAddress> <Netmask> <Interface>
Then run the following command:
# service network restart
and finally verify the route with:
# route
