Disappearing persistent route in Windows 2000 cluster node

One node of a windows 2000 cluster keeps losing one persistent route.  I have added the route with route add -p (three routes total).  It appears in the persitent route and the route listed above is correct.  However when we reboot the server the persistent route is still listed but the actual route listed above is incorrect and has switched to the internal cluster ip address.  This happens on all persistent routes, they are not remaining after reboot!

Additional info:

The command I am using is:

route add -p 10.40.0.0 MASK 255.255.0.0 10.2.0.3 IF 0x1000003

This works fine until reboot.  After reboot I still have the entry:

However after reboot the IF on the list is incorrect and now points to 10.1.1.1 (our cluster internal).

Would it be possible that something like RRAS (Routing and Remote Access) is taking over the routes?

Maybe you should try to adjust the routes through there

RRAS is not running on this or any other server.  For now I have a script which drops and recreates the routes at boot.  This seems to work.
