This procedure describes how to create default NIM routes for two Networks (for example, Network1 and Network3 ).
You can also use the Add New Network TaskGuide to establish the default network route:
To create a default NIM route for a network, enter:
nim -o change -a routingseq_no='default <Gateway>' NetworkObject
where default is the reserved keyword used by NIM to indicate a default route, and Gateway is the host name (or IP address) of the interface that clients on NetworkObject use to contact other networks in the NIM environment.
For example, to establish default NIM routes for Network1 and Network3 , enter:
nim -o change -a routing1='default gw1_tok' Network1 nim -o change -a routing1='default gw1_fddi' Network3
where gw1_tok is the host name of the default gateway for machines on Network1 , and gw1_fddi is the host name of the default gateway for machines on Network3 .
The detailed information for the network objects now shows the added default routes. To display the detailed information for the two networks, enter:
lsnim -l Network1 Network3
which produces output similar to the following:
Network1: class = networks type = tok net_addr = 188.8.131.52 snm = 255.255.255.0 Nstate = ready for use prev_state = ready for use routing1 = default gw1_tok Network3: class = networks type = fddi net_addr = 184.108.40.206 snm = 255.255.255.0 Nstate = ready for use prev_state = information is missing from this object's definition routing1 = default gw1_fddi
