Statically configure routes to be resolved to a next hop that is not directly connected. The route is resolved through the inet.0 and inet.3 routing tables.


You cannot configure both resolve and retain options for a statically configured route because resolved next hops cannot be retained.


Static routes can point only to a directly connected next hop.


We recommend configuring the no-resolve option for individual routes to override default configuration.
