Anyone have an idea why under my vlan interface, I can not add ip policy route-map?  Under the interface I hit "ip p?" and recieve "probe  proxy-arp" no policy??
Thank You,

    Before doing "ip policy route-map" you need to configure either of the following global configuration commands:
          sdm prefer extended-match
          sdm prefer access extended-match
          sdm prefer routing extended-match

    Please, read this document:

    It is exactly an example of how configuring policy route-maps on 3550.

    Hope this helps.

    Upgrade your IOS on the switch to 12.1.19-EA1 and you will be able to use PBR.
