    I am deploying some playbooks in a corporate environment where there are a number of static routes. These routes are sent as option 249 from a dhcp server, and that seems to work well for all windows clients.

    However, the Playbook only seems to respect the router option (003) sent by the DHCP server. So the playbooks get can out of the network to the internet, but not access various internal corporate resources on different subnets.

    Does anyone have this working? Or...is this a know PB issue?

    Did you point them toward a server or gateway. option 003 will point what ever falls under its scope to use a given server or gateway. So to me it sounds like your Server/gateway field is empty so local data has no route.

    I can access the local subnet fine, as well as external (internet) through the default route just fine. But other subnets (through internal routers) require static routes to access. These are not accessible.

    How do you get static routes into the BB PB? (If not through option 249)

    How about letting the router defined by option 3 route the packets to the other internal subnets?

    Not an option...the default route is the firewall (no internal routing). Remember this is a corporate environment so scale, security, etc. are big. (eg: some subnets are in different cities across a wan). The routes & default gateway work great with laptops so not a config option as far as I can tell. I'm just curious/surprised that BB ignores option 249 / static routes.

    the current thread was the third unsponsored hit on duck duck go.


    this technet article was number one.

    did you get a sniff of the dhcp transaction?

    Is there no way to simply define the routes on the internal interface of your firewall/router?
    I haven't tested it, but since it's *nix based, the playbook should be able to process an ICMP redirect packet from the firewall redirecting it to the proper router. This assumes of course your firewall will send those packets in the first place... Cisco definitely supports it anyway.
    It shouldn't be a security issue either, but since I'm not aware of what hardware you are using or what topology you have, I cannot say that for sure.

    Oh another thing you can try is defining the routes as option 121. I think 249 is microsoft only, whereas option 121 is a RFC3442 *standard*

    It seems Microsoft has seen the err of their ways and are now changing to Option 121 with Windows 2008+
    So by defining Option 121, you will be saving yourself some trouble with windows 7 and windows 8.

    I switched to option 121, but the BB PB still seems to ignore the static routes.

    Is there a network diagnostic type app that will allow my to show the routing table on the PB?

    I cannot get permission to modify the corporate firewall, so this has to be done through routes/DHCP. (Which it should be)
