Add Route


I am using SolusVM to host a few Virtual Machines using XEN PV. In a VM when I add an additional IP address, I need to reboot the VM through SolusVM Control Panel. Without rebooting I am not able to ping the VM although I create network configuration in the VM.
I noticed after I reboot the machine through SolusVM Control panel a route entry is created on the main node like following:

Before reboot:   *      UH    0      0        0 vifvm218.0   *      UH    0      0        0 vifvm277.0

Open in new window

E.g. the new IP is following new entry will be created:   *      UH    0      0        0 vifvm284.0

Open in new window

My question is if it is possible to add the route manually to the main node so that I don't need to reboot the VM ?

I do not believe so as it needs to add a NIC which needs to be activated, thus, a reboot is needed.

ip route add <IP> dev vifvm218.0
