Two servers on same subnet taking different routes to same destination


  • I've got a strange problem.  I have a server that is taking a strange route to another server.  I've run tracert on 2 different servers on the same subnet to the same destination and they take different routes.

    I've checked all of the routers and they only show one route to the destination subnet.

    What would cause this one server to take a different route, even though that route doesn't exist on any of the routers/gateways?

    Is this even a Windows problem or something with the routers (which are Cisco)?

    The only thing that has changed recently is the IP address of the destination server.

  •     Do they both use the same default gateway router? Do they both have the same IP showing in tracert as the first hop? If they do, the problem is not local to your LAN.
