%PLATFORM_PBR-4-SDM_MISMATCH: PBR requires sdm template routing - Enable PBR on Cisco 3560E


Working on Cisco 3560E with IOS C3560-IPSERVICESK9-M and trying to enable Policy Based Routing on vlan interface with command :

ip access-list extended Re_Route_10.99.13.66

 permit ip host any

route-map Map_Re_Route_10.99.13.66 permit 10
 match ip address Re_Route_10.99.13.66
 set ip next-hop
interface Vlan13
ip policy route-map Map_Re_Route_10.99.13.66 

but got following errors in the log:
017242: .Mar 24 14:59:46.961 EDT: %PLATFORM_PBR-4-SDM_MISMATCH: PBR requires sdm template routing

Googled Internet, and found SDM template has to change to meet this requirement. Here are some documentation explains this:
Understanding Policy Routing
Configuring SDM Templates

SDM templates is used to configure system resources in the switch to optimize support for specific features, depending on how the switch is used in the network. You can select a template to provide maximum system usage for some functions or use the default template to balance resources.

To allocate ternary content addressable memory (TCAM) resources for different usages, the switch SDM templates prioritize system resources to optimize support for certain features. You can select SDM templates to optimize these features:

•Access—The access template maximizes system resources for access control lists (ACLs) to accommodate a large number of ACLs.

•Default—The default template gives balance to all functions.

•Routing—The routing template maximizes system resources for IPv4 unicast routing, typically required for a router or aggregator in the center of a network.

•VLANs—The VLAN template disables routing and supports the maximum number of unicast MAC addresses. It would typically be selected for a Layer 2 switch.

 The selected template optimizes the resources in
 the switch to support this level of features for
 8 routed interfaces and 1024 VLANs.
