Hi again Ananth, As stated before it would, in most cases, be better to add the route once and for all on the clients default gateway. But, you probably have your reasons J I think there are some basic things about GP processing and filtering you should take a look at. Maybe this blog will help you: http://heidelbergit.blogspot.com/2008/01/yes-of-course-you-can-assign-group. html Earlier you told me you want to "hit" all systems in the domain - in that case all you have to do is: 1. Have the script file in a shared directory where Authenticated User or Domain Computers have Read access 2. Create the GPO and point the Startup script to the shared script file (Computer Configuration part on the GPO) 3. Link the GPO to the Domain Level (you don't have to change Permissions or anything in this case) 4. Reboot all machines for the script to be executed (could take 2 reboots) However - I must warn you a bit: this will execute the script during the next startup (or two) on ALL domain computers (including servers). Note to #3: If all of your computers are in the "My Computers OU" you could just link the GPO here (except computers in the Domain Controllers OU would not be hit - if they should be hit too you could link the policy to that OU too and restart them one after the other perhaps). If this doesn't execute on the clients you must start troubleshooting. Look in the client eventlog to spot for any errors, use GPRESULT to be sure the GPO applies to the computers etc. However, I do expect this to work.

Hi All, We want to add a persistent route to all systems in 192.168.2.x network to a server having IP 192.168.3.240. We created a route.bat batch file and copied this command Route Add 192.168.3.240 MASK 255.255.255.255 192.168.2.254 -p This batch file was copied to \\Server.com\SysVol\Server.com\scripts\route.bat folder. The batch file was placed in Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/ Scripts/Startup We created a new group called Harmony_Sys in Builtin folder in that Domain. Created a new OU called Harmony Systems, moved systems on which this batch file has to be run to this OU. Made the computer a member of the group Harmony_Sys group. From GPMC, We applied this route policy to this Harmony Systems OU. But the new route is not getting created. Where have we gone wrong, is the procedure correct. regards Ananth.
