Cisco PBR And The SDM Prefer Command

Cisco has some good features in their switching gear. Like most vendors, they do policy based routing also.
I found myself in a small predicament. You see, my customer has this 7450 Brocade switch, which is way better than any campus Cisco access switch on the market. The only thing was, they didn't have the premium license needed for PBR. But, it just so happened that there was an old 3560 switch laying around, and PBR was an active feature on it. The only thing I had to do was to do the "sdm prefer routing" command and a reload, and it was ready for configuration. PBR is a great feature. As one of my old bosses put it, "them's the big boys".
Before config, I decided to draw it out.
