I'm trying to use PBR on a Catalyst 6509 whith MSFC2, with IOS Version 12.1(19)E.

I have defined the following PBR

route-map PBR permit 0

match ip address 102

set ip default next-hop

The ACL 102 is as follow:

permit ip any log

Which simply states for routing all the source to the next-hop IP instead of the normal gateway.

On the interface, I have defined

interface Vlan114

ip address

ip ospf authentication-key 7

ip policy route-map PBR

The next hop is directly attached to the router via a Vlan.

When trying to monitor it, I see

"policy rejected, normal forwarding"

Any Ideas ?

You have specified "set ip default next-hop " and NOT "set ip next-hop "

The command "set ip default next-hop " means, the router will route the packets to the next hop IP address only if there is no route for it in the IP routing table.

So, in this case, there is a route for the desired destinations in the routing table which is why the normal routing is considered and the PBR is not.

Hope this helps.
