Eliminate a default route received by a Dhcp server

Hi,

I have a Pc running Win2k advance server sp4 with 2 Ip interfaces connected to 2 different networks (Net1 and Net2) and the Pc acts as Dhcp client.
There are Dhcp servers in both networks, each of them releasing the Ip address, netmask and default router.
After connecting both cables both Dhcp server "inject" a default route, so in the Pc the routing table is as follows:

Active Routes:
Network Destination        Netmask          Gateway       Interface  Metric
          0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      10.210.13.1   10.210.13.150       1           (Net1 side)
          0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      192.168.1.1   192.168.1.56       1           (Net2 side)

My need is to delete the second default route after the Dhcp server release it and without touching the Dhcp server configuration (becasue in use by other users and administered by another department). I will add some specific routes with "route -p" to reach the desired portions of the network on Net2 side instead, so that the final desired routing table will appear as follows:

Active Routes:
Network Destination        Netmask          Gateway       Interface  Metric
          0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      10.210.13.1   10.210.13.150       1           (Net1 side)
          10.1.1.0          255.255.255.0      192.168.1.1   192.168.1.56       1           (Net2 side)
          10.1.2.0          255.255.255.0      192.168.1.1   192.168.1.56       1           (Net2 side)

Note that this configuration has to survive a reboot, of course.

To summarize: The Dhcp server on Net2 side injects a default route that I don't want, my need is either do not receive it or eliminate it, working on the Dhcp client only.
Any idea?

Thank you in advance!
Best regards.
Diego.

just do a route delete 1.2.3.4 ,,,, you can add this to a login script so it will survive a reeboot or new lease

Hi Mikeleebrla,
thank you for your answer.

The problem now is: if I add the "route delete" command to a login script, this will be executed when the corresponding user logs in. This means that, until no user logs in, the undesired default route won't disappear.
How could be possible to execute such command when the machine boots, of course after the interface is configured, but with no user login?

Thank you.
Diego.

then make it a startup script

Hi Mike,

this solution works and it is quite close to what I need to reach.
The only surviving problem is: the route is deleted every time the Pc is rebooted, but in case the lease is renewed for whatever reason (i.e., cable detached and reattached), the Pc still has 2 default routes in the routing table.
Any idea to solve this last part of the problem? Any possibility to execute a batch file to delete the route every time the Dhcp lease occurs?

Thank you again!
Diego.
