Adding custom network route in Citrix Xenserver 6.1+

How to add custom network route xenserver

To add a custom route in Citrix Xenserver 6.1 or higher, execute the following commands:

  • network interface must exist prior running these commands. Refer to XenServer configuration guite to create and configure network interface(s).
  • find network uuid: xe network-list
xe network-list
xe network-param-set uuid=<network-uuid> other-config:static-routes=10.0.0.0/24/10.1.2.2

(in our case we have our XenServer with xenbr1 interface configured with IP 10.1.2.3 and we need it to access network 10.0.0.0/24 via custom route 10.1.2.2)

  • run "route -n" to confirm our custom route is in the list
  • reboot XenServer to confirm the static route is persistent after reboot (run "route -n" again and confirm the route you added above still there).
  • Enjoy
