    Configuring Topologies (NSM Procedure)

    For Multitopology Routing to run on the router, you need to configure one or more topologies. For each topology, you specify a string value, such as voice, that defines the type of traffic, as well as an interface family, such as IPv4. In addition, a default topology is automatically created. You can also enable a topology for IPv4 multicast traffic. Each topology that you configure creates a new routing table and populates it with direct routes from the topology.

    To configure topologies in NSM:

    1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device to select it.
    3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, expand Routing Options.
    4. Select Topologies.
    5. Add or modify settings as specified in Table 1.
    6. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
