Have to change default route for one particular VLAN in core switch

I have ICX-7750 on which default route points to my firewall i.e to 10.x.x.x to my firewall.


Now i am replacing the firewall and implementing a new firewall of checkpoint. so i have created a test vlan on my switch and want to default route of test vlan to be  new firewall instead of 10.x.x.x.(old firewall).


how can i achieve this configuration.

Re: Have to change default route for one particular VLAN in core switch



The switch can only really have one active default in this case, the best way to achieve what you require would be to set up Policy Based Routing (PBR) to route traffic sourced from IP range of new VLAN to new gateway (checkpoint firewall)
