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


A VSwitch is created. For more information, see Create a VSwitch.
Note Custom route tables are supported in all region except the China (Beijing), China (Shenzhen), and China (Hangzhou) regions.
