I have a cisco 3750 switch and I am trying to do POLICY BASED ROUTING on this switch to route traffic to two different gateway routers.

The switch show version -
Cisco IOS Software, C3750 Software (C3750-IPBASE-M), Version 12.2(35)SE5, RELEAS

ROM: Bootstrap program is C3750 boot loader
BOOTLDR: C3750 Boot Loader (C3750-HBOOT-M) Version 12.2(25r)SEC, RELEASE SOFTWAR

System image file is "flash:c3750-ipbase-mz.122-35.SE5/c3750-ipbase-mz.122-35.SE

cisco WS-C3750-24P (PowerPC405) processor (revision M0) with 118784K/12280K byte
s of memory.
Processor board ID FDO1243Y4D1
Last reset from power-on
2 Virtual Ethernet interfaces
24 FastEthernet interfaces
2 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
The password-recovery mechanism is enabled.

512K bytes of flash-simulated non-volatile configuration memory.

Model number                    : WS-C3750-24PS-S
Switch   Ports  Model              SW Version              SW Image
------   -----  -----              ----------              ----------
*    1   26     WS-C3750-24P       12.2(35)SE5             C3750-IPBASE-ME (fc4)


I have created one vlan lan 101 and configured an address for it to participate in the routing process. But after enabling the "ip routing "command and "SDM ROUTING TEMPLATE" , i cannot see the command " ip policy route-map " command under the interface configuration.

Please advice whether my IOS version can support policy based routing ?

you need to upgrade to the ipservices version, ipbase does not support PBR

IP Base firmware does NOT support Policy Based Routing

You need to upgrade the switch firmware to IP services

IP Base doesn't support PBR, you need to upgrade to IP Services.

Figured I would keep the echo going. Boy do I hate when someone responds echoing your answer almost verbatim.
