easy question regarding router-interface command

Hey guys I've never worked with a Foundry switch before so I'm unfamiliar with some of their commands.  I have a config script made for a Foundry switch that I need to convert over to a Cisco config.  I know this is going to be an easy question to answer for you guys but what does the command "router-interface 34" perform and what is it's role?  Below is the script that we use in our core switch to divert traffic to a different path during a maintenance window on a palisades box so that none of our users experience any downtime.  I'm just trying to understand the command better so that I can make our script do the same thing on our new Cisco switch. All help is appreciated!!

#REMOVE CONFIG
no interface ve 34          --Cisco conversion to no int vlan 34
vlan 304                        --Same     
no router-interface 34     --need to know what Cisco command is?  Is this basically tagging that port 34 to vlan 304?
no ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.34.222   - Same

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.100.4          -Same

#ADD CONFIG
vlan 304
router-interface 34
interface ve 34
ip address 192.168.34.5 255.255.255.0
no ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.100.4
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.34.222

Re: easy question regarding router-interface command

vlan 304
router-interface 34

So does this command on a Foundry switch just instruct all VLAN 304 traffic to travel through the interface ve 34??

Re: easy question regarding router-interface command

Router-interface enables Brocade/Foundry's Integrated Switch Routing (ISR) technology.

This mean local routeing (layer 3 VLAN).

The code you are replicating turns off a layer 3 VLAN and delete some route to it and vice versa.

Thanks
