PBR is not working with a non-adjacent next hop router

Core Issue

The next hop router in the path toward the destination where the packets should be forwarded must be adjacent.

Resolution

Policy routing requires the next-hop ip address specified in the set clauses to be adjacent (directly connected) to the policy router. If the next-hop ip address is not on a directly connected subnet (sharing a subnetwork with the policy router), policy routing fails.

For more information, refer to White Paper Policy-Based Routing: The Need to Define Routing Policy.

Hi

This is a requirement for the PBR that the next hop should be a directly connected ip. However, we can have a alternate to this. Known as PBR recursive ;lookup we can make an ip next hop which is not directly connected.

here is the link : http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/iproute_pi/configuration/guide/iri_prb_rec_next_hop.pdf
