Wer are preparing to roll out Windows 7 to users. Computers receievthe ir ip address and default gateway through DHCP. Some users need to go through another gateway which we hard code in. Regardless of hard coding and setting this gateway to a lower metric - Windows 7 ignores it and continues to use the dhcp assigned gateway.
The only solution I have found so far is using "route add" to set the desired gateway and metric.
Has anyone else run into this? Is there a better solution? Thanks.
