I don't think you can get advanced L3 routing with the SUPII+ module
According to this matrix, it does EIGRP Stub and static routing only. no OSPF, EIGRP, or other advanced routing protocol support.

You would have to upgrade the Supervisor module itself to get the feature support.

• Hardware-based IP Cisco Express Forwarding routing at 48 mpps
• Static IP routing
• Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and RIP2
