policy route pbr <name> rule <rule-number> source mac-address <address>

Defines the source MAC address to match for a routing policy rule.

set policy route pbr name rule number source mac-address address
delete policy route pbr name rule number source mac-address [ address ]
show policy route pbr name rule number source mac-address [ address ]
name
Name of a PBR group. The PBR group must be unique and must not be used with other PBR policy commands.
rule-number

The numeric identifier of the rule. Rule numbers determine the order in which rules are executed. Each rule must have a unique rule number. The numbers range from 1 through 9999.

You can define multiple rules by creating more than one rule configuration node.

source
Specifies matching based on a source address.
address
Media access control (MAC) address. The address format is six 8-bit numbers, separated by colons, in hexadecimal; for example, 00:0a:59:9a:f2:ba.

Configuration mode


policy {
    route {
        pbr name {
            rule rule-number {
                source {
                    mac-address address 
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
Note: For policy based routing, the usefulness of this command is limited because the MAC address is on a local interface.

You must specify the address-family, action, and table leaf nodes to configure a routing policy. It is recommended to use the delete policy route pbr name rule number command to delete a routing policy.

Use the set form of this command to define a source MAC address for a routing-policy rule set.

Use the delete form of this command to delete the source MAC address for the routing-policy rule set.

Use the show form of this command to display the source MAC address for the routing-policy rule set.
