Does Catalyst 6000 supervisor 2 support vrf-lite ? How many routes does cisco 6509 support in an VRF ?

i found that i cannot put the Gigabit and VLAN interface,but can put the loopback into vrf .

S2(config)#int gigabitEthernet 8/8

S2(config-if)#ip vrf forwarding test1

%This interface does not support ip vrf forwarding



interface Loopback99

ip vrf forwarding test1

ip address

Hello Liuguiqing,

I remember limitations for supervisor2 for MPLS enabled interfaces that should be on OSM linecards.

As a workaround I would suggest to try to see if an SVI interface like supports VRF

int vlan 100

ip vrf forwarding test1

ip address x.x.x.x y.y.y.y

this should be enough to implement VRF lite.

Hope to help
