Perform Manual Auto-static Updates

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

  1. Open the Routing and Remote Access MMC snap-in.

  2. In the console tree, expand the router name, and then expand IPv4.

  3. Under IPv4, click General.

  4. In the details pane, right-click the demand-dial interface you want to update, and then click Update Routes.


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.
