Adds a nexthop for the named flow redirection policy.
|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.|
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 10.1.1.1 for the flow redirection policy flow10 with a priority of 100:
configure flow-redirect flow10 add nexthop 10.1.1.1 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.
This command is available for IPv4 and IPv6 flow-redirection policies on the platforms listed for the Policy Based Routing feature in the Switch Engine 32.3 Feature License Requirements document.
