Windows 2003 DHCP scope assignments

I am trying to assign a route to my clients using dhcp on windows 2003 AD server.

I have used the following option.

Classless Static Route
This option specifies a list of classful static routes that the client automatically adds to its IP routing table. A DHCP client running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 requests this option. The Classless Static Route can be used to configure split tunneling for remote access virtual private network (VPN) clients running Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. For more information, see “VPN Technical Reference.”

This is still not changing the route table on the server.

Do I have to have RRAS running, because this isn't a solution for me at this time.  Has anyone had success in changing a XP clients local static routes using the AD DHCP server.

To clarify, you want to use DHCP to assign a static route to the clients on your LAN, correct?  

What is your concern with the route table on your server?

It would help if you gave more details on the static route you want to assign to your clients and how your LAN is set up.

I'm looking for someone who has had this feature working through dhcp.

You configure this in the DHCP MMC snap-in.  I assume you've already done this.

Typically a server wouldn't be a DHCP client, so the static route information the DHCP service is vending to DHCP clients won't have any effect on the server. If you want to put a static route on a statically IP'd server, you wouldn't use DHCP.

You don't need RRAS running for DHCP to distribute a static route to your XP clients.

So what are you trying to achieve and what's not working?

XPClients recieves the static classless route from the DHCP server and updates in local route table.

I want to be able to do a route print and see the static route in the XPclients route table.
