Your network has a router named Router1 that provides access to the Internet. You have a
server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2012 R2. Server1 to use Router1 as the
default gateway.
A new router named Router2 is added to the network. Router2 provides access to the
Internet. The IP address of the internal interface on Router2 is 10.1.14.2S4.
You need to configure Server1 to use Router2 to connect to the Internet if Router1 fails.
What should you do on Server1?

  • A. Add a route for 10.1.14.0/24 that uses 10.1.14.254 as the gateway and set the metric to 1.
  • B. Add 10.1.14.254 as a gateway and set the metric to 1.
  • C. Add a route for 10.1.14.0/24 that uses 10.1.14.254 as the gateway and set the metric to 500.
  • D. Add 10.1.14.254 as a gateway and set the metric to 500.

If the answer is wrong, can you explain why?

The queston asks to add a rotue to the Internet, so you have to set up a default gateway, not a static route. Both the questions that says "add are route for X.X.X.X are wrong". The question also states that the second gateway has to be used if the primary fails so you've to set it up with an higher metric than the default (which is 1). Regards

The new route is an alternative if Router1 fails, so the metric cannot be 1. This eliminates two answer options. Since no specific destination host name or IP address is provided in the question, the destination address of 10.2.14.0/24 cannot be verified as appropriate. So, only one valid answer option remains.
