Policy Based Routing with NX-OS

Unanswered Question

I'm using NX-OS 4.2 and I'm trying to put in a policy based route map to force traffic through a specific interface.  I've done the same thing with IOS many times, but it appears that the only SET commands with PBR are to set the next hop IP address.  The documentation for NX-OS PBR mentions being able to set interfaces but the command doesn't seem to be there.

Has anyone run into this?  Is there a work around?  Or is there some other NX weirdness I'm not seeing?

Let me know.

Thanks.

I have this problem too.

Thanks.

I have the Enterprise Services License and I have the feature enabled.  I am able to configure PBR with the set next-hop command, but the set interface command seems to be missing.

Can anyone else check their NX-OS installations and see if the set interface command is visible?

Thanks again for anyone's insight.

I happened to notice this post while reviewing PBR and NX-OS. I believe the support for the set interface

route-map command was added in 5.2(1) of NX-OS.
