configure flow-redirect add nexthop

configure flow-redirect flow_redirect_name add nexthop ipaddress priority number


Adds a nexthop for the named flow redirection policy.

Syntax Description

flow_redirect_name Specifies the name of the flow redirection policy.
ipaddress Specifies the IPv4 or IPv6 address of a new nexthop.
number Specifies the priority value for the nexthop.



Usage Guidelines

Use this command to add a new nexthop for the named flow redirection policy. You can specify an IPv4 address or an IPv6 unicast IP address (IPv6 multicast addresses are not supported). After you enter an IP address, the redirection policy only accepts addresses from the same family as the first address specified. For example, if the first IP address added is an IPv6 unicast address, you cannot add an IPv4 address to the policy.

The priority value can range from a low of 1 to a high of 4096. The nexthop with the highest priority among multiple ones is preferred as the working nexthop. When each added nexthop has the same priority, the first one configured is preferred.


The following example adds a nexthop for the flow redirection policy flow10 with a priority of 100:

configure flow-redirect flow10 add nexthop priority 100.


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.

Support for IPv6 flow-redirection policies was added in ExtremeXOS 12.7.

The maximum number of flow redirects was increased to 4096 in ExtremeXOS 16.1.

Platform Availability

This command is available for IPv4 and IPv6 flow-redirection policies on the platforms listed for the Policy Based Routing feature in the ExtremeXOS and Switch Engine 31.7 Feature License Requirements document.
