Unanswered Question
Jun 1st, 2009

Hi all,

I have a switch c4510R and would like to use PBR(policy-base-routing), was searching on the cisco software advisor and did not find this functionality. So i can not use the PBR into c4510R?


I have this problem too.

Hello Ricardo,

the answer is that this depends on the specific type of supervisor you have installed on it.

the newer SUPs 6E and probably 6 L E don't support it.

There have been other threads of collegues that have discovered this.

Other supervisor models support PBR.



for example sup V 10Ge supports PBR


Hope to help

actually PBR is supported on the Sup6 with the newest release 12.2-52.SG. It just came out May 20th. i was waiting for it to be released.

Hi Giuslar,

My supervisor is V-10GE, but not supported PBR, at least when I enter the following commands he shows me the option "ip policy"

C4510(config)# interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/1

C4510(config-if)# ip p?

% Unrecognized command


My IOS is 12.2(52)SG

Hello Ricardo,

is the interface configured for L3 or a switchport?

I think you need a valid L3 interface to be able to apply PBR (inbound)

Hope to help

Hi Giuseppe,

sorry, but i configured in the interface vlan, the following.

c4510(config)# interface vlan 2

c4510(config-if)# ip address

c4510(config-if)# ip p?

% Unrecognized command


Is this above interface a layer 3 interface?

Hello Ricardo,

an SVI interface like vlan2 is a L3 interface indeed.

I wonder if it can be a question of feature set.

May you post

sh ver |inc image

to see the exact image name

Hope to help

the file IOS image is cat4500-ipbasek9-mz.122-52.SG.bin, but i search on the cisco advisor and not found any IOS with support PBR.


r-barbosa Fri, 06/05/2009 - 13:28


Then i go the software advisor and field Engine CPU not available "Supervisor V-10GE". Then i choose CAT4500-SUP5-10GE and click "Next", when typing PBR its not found. have any suggestions or run the download of another IOS?
