command "service-policy input policy-name permit-any" will not work

Hi all,

have a SG500 with latest Firmware, but this command will not work.

service-policy input QoS_01 permit-any

i get this error message:

% Wrong number of parameters or invalid range, size or characters entered

without the option "permit-any or deny-any" the command is successfully.

What is the reason?

It is important, directly to specify this options. Otherwise to lose the access to the switch.




command "service-policy input policy-name permit-any" will not w

Hi Stefan, there is an implicit deny all on the end of every access list. The switch only functions in 1-direction (input) for the acl.

You need to write your deny or permit within the acl body.


config t

ip access-list extended test

permit ip any any

int fax/x/x

service-input acl test

It sounds like to me you're applying an ACL to an interface without writing a parameter there at all which in turns makes the implicit deny all break whatever you're doing.

Re: command "service-policy input policy-name permit-any" will n

Hi Tom,

i have a ACL / ACE and create a QoS "policy table" put the "policy class map" (with class mappings) in it.

And now i will bind this QoS policy to a Ethernet port.

cli tutorial example say:

Use the service-policy Interface Configuration (Ethernet, Port-channel) mode command to bind a policy map to a port/port-channel. Use the no form of this command to detach a policy map from an interface.

This command is only available in QoS advanced mode.

service-policy input policy-map-name default-action [permit-any | deny-any]

no service-policy input


  1. witchxxxxxx(config-if)# service-policy input policy1 permit-any

A cisco support open a ticket for me.
