PBR over VRF interface?

Hi,

My requirement is to have PBR applied on VRF interface, is it possible? When I apply PBR on VRF interface I get following error:

% Policy Based Routing is NOT supported for VRF interfaces
% IP-Policy can be used ONLY for marking (set/clear DF bit) on VRF

In my case it is LAN interface where I have to apply PBR.

Please find the following config, this will help to understand the scenerio better.

Re: PBR over VRF interface?

Hello Ashish,

what device is this and what IOS image are you running on it?

it may be a question of IOS image or a problem related to this platform

Hope to help

Re: PBR over VRF interface?

Hi Giuseppe,

Thanks for replying.

I am using ISRs and IOS is 15.0, security features.

Just wanted to inform you that it is working with above mentioned config. If you feel the need of improvement in above config....you are most welcome.

Thanks again

Re: PBR over VRF interface?

Hi Ashish,

I too came across this error when configuring PBR on a VRF interface and I too found that it worked anyway. This was on a 7204VXR (NPE400) running 12.2(28)SB8.

However, I must warn you that approximately 3 months after applying the configuration it seemed to stop working without any apparent cause. This had the effect of blocking all traffic that we trying to policy route and caused an outage for one of our clients.

You are using a much more recent IOS version so you may not run into the same trouble but I thought you might be interested in this experience in case it occurs for you too. We could find no workaround at the time, even removing and reapplying the configuration made no difference and since then it has been permanently removed.

Regards

Steven
