Perform Scheduled Auto-static Updates

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

  1. Create a batch file that contains the netsh commands you need to perform an auto-static update.

  2. Open Task Scheduler, double-click Add Scheduled Task, and then follow the instructions in the Scheduled Task wizard to schedule the batch file to run.


When an auto-static update is performed, the existing auto-static routes for the interface are deleted before the update is requested from the other router. If there is no response to the request, then the router cannot replace the routes it has deleted. This may lead to a loss of connectivity to remote networks.
