Routes are paths from one network location to another; static routes are paths that do not dynamically change with changing network conditions. You can add static routes to a network configuration. For example, if you want an array to use a specific path through the network to reach a gateway, you can create a static route to the gateway.

To create a static route, you specify a subnet (network address and netmask) and the gateway IP address within the subnet.

NOTE: The default gateway IP address is in the same subnet as the management IP address.
