Configuring Route Resolution (NSM Procedure)

You can configure a routing table to accept routes from specific routing tables to enable the device to manage and route the traffic effectively between a source host and destination host. You can configure a routing table to use specific import policies to produce a route resolution table to resolve routes.

To configure a route resolution table in NSM:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. In the Devices list, double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the configuration tree, expand Routing Options.
  5. Select Resolution.
  6. Add or modify the parameters as specified in Table 52.
  7. Click one:
    • OK—To save the changes.
    • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
    • Apply—To apply the routing option settings.

Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
