I've got an ESXi server that I'm trying to assign a static IP to. I'm having trouble setting the gateway because (I presume) the gateway is on a different subnet.
I've been able to accomplish this task on normal Linux servers by doing the following:
route add 18.104.22.168 eth0 route add -net default gw 22.214.171.124 eth0
Now using the GUI config tools for ESXi I've tried setting the following
IP: 126.96.36.199 Netmask: 255.255.252.0 Gateway: 188.8.131.52
The gateway does not stick, and when I try to add the gateway manually using esxcfg-route it says it has no route to the gateway IP. How can I get this static IP set correctly? (I don't have any control over the network setup).
