This topic describes how to associate a VSwitch with a custom route table. After you associate a VSwitch with a custom route table, you can use the custom route table to control how the VSwitch routes network traffic. Each VSwitch can be associated with only one custom route table or system route table. After the VSwitch is associated with a custom route table, the system route table is automatically disassociated.


A custom route table is created. For more information, see Create a custom route table.
