Subject Re: Configuring static routes on VM

So a little more context around the question.

I am trying to solve the problem that occurs when you want to egress from a
VDC to some place that is not the Internet. So as an example  if you have a
VDC within a CloudStack managed environment with Internet access which will
also connect to another physical environment within the same datacenter (or
not) that is layer 3 separated from the virtualized environment.

I can see two options for solving this issue. One would be to get a second
external interface configured on the CloudStack managed gateway that would
route me to a private VRF somewhere on the provider core while the second
way which is the one  that spawned this question would be to bring up
a separate gateway (This now involves having two routers/firewalls within
the same VDC). With the second gateway we can now add routes directly to
the VMs themselves using option 121 (or 33/249 pending some of the OS
differences) on the DHCP server to control what egress point the VM would
