If you want to simply add route to one or different servers, you can use Group Policy with logon script configured in the computer settings : "route add mask -p"
Create a GPO and link it to the OU where your server are stored
Edit and configure the logon script (when browsing, create new batch file in the directory) and write the route as in my example. You can use the -p switch to make the route persistent (ie available at each reboot).

Can the IP routes be added to DHCP instead?
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks for your valuable input.

With the option for classless routes in Windows 2008 server DHCP, will classless routes work for Windows 2000 and Windows XP clients?
