NextHopAddress

Last Updated: 12/12/2016

NextHopAddress specifies the IP address of the next hop in the Route.

NextHopAddress can also be used to specify the default gateway in network configuration.

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.

Values

Specifies the IP address of the next hop in the Route. Nexthopaddress is a string with a maximum length of 45 characters.

This string type does not support empty elements. Do not create an empty value for this setting.
