Common route-map for PBR in multi-VRF?

Hi,

Is it possible to use a common route-map for PBR and apply it in different VRFs?

Consider this config segment:

interface GigabitEthernet0/0.100

encapsulation dot1Q 100

ip vrf forwarding one

ip address 192.168.170.115 255.255.255.254

!

interface GigabitEthernet0/0.200

encapsulation dot1Q 200

ip vrf forwarding two

ip address 192.168.170.115 255.255.255.254

!

interface GigabitEthernet0/0.300

encapsulation dot1Q 300

ip vrf forwarding three

ip address 192.168.170.115 255.255.255.254

!

interface GigabitEthernet0/1

ip vrf forwarding two

ip address 192.168.0.254 255.255.255.0

ip policy route-map pbr2fwl

!

Note that the link address assigned to each sub-interface (in different VRFs) is the same.

If I construct the pbr2fwl route-map like this, then it does not work:

route-map pbr2fwl permit 10

set ip next-hop 192.168.170.114

The documentation suggests I should do this:

route-map pbr2fwl-one permit 10

set ip vrf one next-hop 192.168.170.114

!

route-map pbr2fwl-two permit 10

set ip vrf two next-hop 192.168.170.114

!

route-map pbr2fwl-three permit 10

set ip vrf three next-hop 192.168.170.114

and apply the corresponding route-map to G0/1.

However I've discovered that this appears to work:

route-map pbr2fwl permit 10

set ip next-hop recursive 192.168.170.114

but I can find no explanation as to why. My understanding of recursive  is that it's only needed when the next hop is not directly connected:

Is this valid or have I just been lucky? This is on a 7301 running 12.2(33).

Cheers,

Simon

Common route-map for PBR in multi-VRF?

Hello,

route-map pbr2fwl permit 10

set ip next-hop recursive 192.168.170.114

this is not recommended config and may create issues and should be avoided.
