Policy routing - using recursive next hop

Hello,

I need to do some sort of Reliable Policy Routing.

I was thinking about using 1 of the 2 features:

-Policy Based Routing: Recursive Next Hop

-PBR Support for Multiple Tracking Options

Does anyone know exactly how set ip next hop recursive works?

I mean,

My first go would be sending traffic to a directly connected router, but if this router goes down I would need to send to a another router (I'm using ethernet and a l2 device to connect these 2, so interface could stay up).

So, my question is:

If I set ip next hop recursive IP1 IP2

would it mean that if I cant get to IP1 , I would go to IP2 and these 2 IPs could be not directly connected to my router?

Hope this is not very confusing. I'm trying to better understand this recursive feature.

Re: Policy routing - using recursive next hop

The configuration does not ensure that packets get routed using the recursive IP address if an intermediate IP address is a shorter route to the destination. For more details regarding the pbr recursive next hop follow the url,
