I have cisco switch 3550 IOS Version 12.1(19)EA1c.   

I can configure route-map commands on that.  but i can not apply that into any vlan interface.   while i try to apply the following command ( ip policy route-map PBR) on VLAN int i get an error msg saying that the command is not recognized.

HI Imran,

2 things to check -

1) are you running IP services/Advanced service (eg. not IP Base). You need to be.-

2) if you are running the right feature set have you enabled the SDM routing template.

please paste the output of this:

show sdm prefer

which ios version u r running ??

if you have ip services IOS then,

You must change the sdm template: sdm prefer extended-match or sdm  prefer routing extended-match or  sdm prefer access extended-match.

the switch must have  IP services image installed.


Please rate if it helps.

Ihv mentioned my ios verion above.    and i am running ip base ios

this is the output

VTP#sh sdm prefer
The current template is the default template.
The selected template optimizes the resources in
the switch to support this level of features for
8 routed interfaces and 1K VLANs.

number of unicast mac addresses:   5K
number of igmp groups:             1K
number of qos aces:                1K
number of security aces:           1K
number of unicast routes:          8K
number of multicast routes:        1K

This command (ip policy route-map ..) is not recognized on the switch at all.  

HI Imran,

Ihv mentioned my ios verion above.    and i am running ip base ios

You need IP services/Advanced service IOS to use this feature.

It will not work with IP Base.
