I am noticing quite a few servers in company environments have static routes added to their windows route tables.
For instance, I changed a static route on a router to accommodate a new company wide network change, then could not work out why some traffic was still failing. Then I realised that a static route had been added to a Windows server which then had to be modified to get things working.
Is this bad practice? I mean would it not be more central and manageable if routes were ONLY added on the company router or core switch ?
Or is adding static routes to severs very common and acceptable ?
Thanks for any info.
