Policy Based Routing on FTD managed by FDM


Hi, I'm trying to set up PBR (Route Maps) on FTD managed by FDM but I'm finding it impossible, on ASA it would look something like this

access-list ROUTEMAP-ACL1 extended permit tcp object CloudKey1 any

route-map ROUTEMAP1 permit 10
 match ip address ROUTEMAP-ACL1
 set ip next-hop <IP-ADDRESS-OF-ISP2-GATEWAY>

 I've added the accesslist and the first line of the route-map command via SmartCLI but I'm stuck on how to create the subsequent commands

If I try to use FlexConfig it says that route-map command is blacklisted CLI


Any ideas?

Please make sure you are running version 6.6 or higher in the FDM and the syntax is the same as ASA.

I am in fact running version 6.6.4, I managed to partially get it to work using a workaround to configure bgp-set-clause to set the next hop as there is a bug which does not let you configure set clause when creating the Route Map in SmartCLI (I have attached a screenshot on how I've set it up.pbr.png


After that I created a FlexConfig object to attach the above route map to the interface as per below



With the above I can confirm that it works however I have an issue that I have no failover for PBR, on an ASA I would have used the following commands:


set ip next hop verify-availability track 1

set ip next hop verify-availability track 2


which would have enabled failover for PBR using a SLA monitor.


I was so excited to move from ASA to FTD but it seems that the product has so much less features. 


Can you share the steps how you applied this route-map to the interface?


Without knowing the steps you are taking to create the route-map, we can only provide information on how a route-map is created using FDM.  Check the following link
