Route

Route specifies information for each route.

The settings under Route must be added in the following order: Identifier, Metric, NextHopAddress, and then Prefix. After saving your Unattend file in Windows SIM, verify in the XML file that the output is shown in the correct order, as shown in the XML example below.
