I have configured two route maps that I will assign to different interfaces. I am testing with a Cisco 4506 loaded with Version 12.2(37)SG. When I go to assign the route-map to a particular interface, I complete the following commands:
and there is no command for ip policy route-map map-tag.
Is there something I am missing on a 4506? It is Cisco IOS version.
Have you configured the interfaces as layer 3 routed interfaces ie.
If the interfaces are layer 2 switchports which they are by default then the "ip policy ..." command will not be available.
Thanks for the quick response, but I have an ip address on that interface.
description test HRC to ERC
ip address 192.168.254.1 255.255.255.248
ip address 10.101.254.254 255.255.255.128
ip helper-address 184.108.40.206
ip helper-address 220.127.116.11
no ip redirects
ip route-cache same-interface
no ip route-cache cef
no ip route-cache
These are the two interfaces I would like to assign the Route-maps.
This is weird.
Just checked Feature Navigator. IP base image does not support PBR. For PBR you need Enterprise Services.
Which feature set do you have ?
That is what we thought until we went out and read the Guide for 12.2.37 SG and it showed us exactly how to do this? How the heck can you offer up the ability to do route-maps and not the ability to assign the route-maps?
It is the IP based image. cat4500-IPBASEK9-M
My apologies. I said "how can you offer" when I meant how can Cisco offer the ability to create route-maps and not the ability to assign them? Weird. I will look at upgrading. Can you send me the link that you were refering to for the feature sets?
Thanks again for all your help.
Search by Platform and then in the drop down box ignore the CatOS entries at the top and scroll down to the 4500 entires under IOS.
I guess the thinking is route-maps can be used for other things than just PBR so you may need them in the IP Base image.
Edison and Jon,
I think Jon hit right on the head with the PBR not being supported in the IP BASIC IOS. IT is supported in the enterprise version. I am sitll not sure why Cisco would offer the route-map capability with the the ability to assign the route-map to an interface.
THis is all too weird.
Thanks for your help. Great Job. Thanks for the advice.
route-map is not only for PBR. You can use route-map for route distribution.

Please view this link for the necessary explanation.
Thanks but I think it is actually an issue with the version I am running. I will acke it on Monday. Have a great weekend and thanks for everyone's help.
Yes, I know the version you are running isn't capable of supporting PBR. I was merely pointing out the fact that you can use route-map (which is a component of PBR) for other purposes.
The key command for PBR is ip policy route-map.
