A MAC list matches the destination MAC address of EVI IS-IS routing information.
A MAC list, identified by name, can comprise multiple items. Each item, identified by an index number,
specifies a MAC address range. An item with a smaller index number is matched first. A route that
matches one item matches the MAC list.
A routing policy can comprise multiple nodes, which are in a logical OR relationship. A node with a
smaller number is matched first. A route (except the route configured with the continue clauses) that
matches one node matches the routing policy.
Each node has a match mode of permit or deny.
permit—Specifies the permit match mode for a routing policy node. If a route matches all the
if-match clauses of the node, it is handled by the apply clauses of the node and does not match
against the next node unless the continue clause is configured. If not, it matches against the next
deny—Specifies the deny match mode for a routing policy node. The apply and continue clauses
of a deny-mode node are never executed. If a route matches all the if-match clauses of the node, it
is discarded and does not match against the next node. If a route does not match all the if-match
clauses of the node, it matches against the next node.
A node can comprise a set of if-match, apply, and continue clauses.
if-match clauses—Configure the match criteria that match the attributes of routing information. The
if-match clauses are in a logical AND relationship. A route must match all the if-match clauses to
match the node.
apply clauses—Specify the actions to be taken on permitted routes, such as modifying a route
continue clause—Specify the next node. A route that matches the current node (permit-mode node)
must match the specified next node in the same routing policy. The continue clause combines the
if-match and apply clauses of the two nodes to improve flexibility of the routing policy.
Follow these guidelines when you configure if-match, apply, and continue clauses:
If you only want to filter routes, do not configure apply clauses.
If you do not configure any if-match clauses for a permit-mode node, the node will permit all routes.
Configure a permit-mode node containing no if-match or apply clauses behind multiple deny-mode
nodes to allow unmatched routes to pass.
Determine the IP prefix list name, matching address range, and community list number.
