Command context




Specifies name of the policy.


Administrators or local user group members with execution rights for this command.


  • Only Layer 3 interfaces are valid for PBR policy application, and only in the routed inbound direction.

  • If a policy with an 'interface tunnel' PBR action is applied on a Layer 3 interface in VRF 'A', and that interface tunnel is a member of VRF 'B', the interface tunnel is considered down/unavailable in this policy application in VRF 'A'.


On the 6400 Switch Series, interface identification differs.

Apply policy to an interface:

switch(config)# interface 1/1/10
switch(config-if)# routing
switch(config-if)# apply policy pbr_policy routed-in
switch(config-if)# exit
