[Huawei-Router1] ip route-static 10.10.30.0 24 GigabitEthernet 1/1/1 
[Huawei-Router1] ip route-static 10.10.30.0 24 GigabitEthernet 1/1/2 preference 110
system-view 
[Huawei-Router2] ip route-static 10.10.30.0 24 GigabitEthernet 1/1/1 
[Huawei-Router2] ip route-static 10.10.30.0 24 GigabitEthernet 1/1/2 preference 110
