Cannot enable PBR on a VLAN WCCP enabled

Answered Question
Jan 4th, 2012

I would like to apply a policy-based route on one of our L3 switches (Cisco 3750) to change the next-hop of a couple of servers only. The VLAN where those servers reside got WCCP enabled on it. When I want to apply the route-policy to that VLAN interface it doesn't let me. When I try to apply the same policy to a VLAN interface without WCCP it does work. Is there any Cisco IOS limitations that would prevent me from doing that?

Configuration:

route policy config:

access-list 70 permit ip host x.x.x.x (server IP)

route-map PBR1 permit 10

match ip address 70

set next-hop 1.1.1.1

int vlan x

ip policy route-map PBR1

current config of the VLAN interface (that we need to apply the route policy to):

interface Vlanxx

description SERVERS vlan

ip address x.x.x.x 255.255.255.0

ip wccp 61 redirect in

I have this problem too.

Hi,

excerpt from 3750 configuration guide for 12.2(55)SE:

Web Cache Communication Protocol (WCCP) and PBR  are mutually exclusive on a switch interface. You cannot enable WCCP  when PBR is enabled on an interface. The reverse is also true, you  cannot enable PBR when WCCP is enabled on an interface.

Regards.
