VXLAN and BGP EVPN Configuration Guide for Dell EMC SmartFabric OS10 Release 10.5.2


Configure controller-provisioned VXLAN

To configure the NSX controller, follow these steps on each OS10 VTEP:
  1. Configure the source interface used for controller-based VXLAN provisioning. Assign an IPv4 address to a loopback interface. Assign the loopback interface to an NVE instance. The loopback interface must belong to the default VRF. For detailed information, see the Configure source IP address on VTEP.
  2. Configure NSX controller reachability.
  3. Assign local access interfaces to be managed by the controller. The VLAN IDs of member access interfaces created using the OS10 CLI must be different from the VLAN IDs of port-scoped VLANs created by the NSX controller for virtual networks.
  4. (Optional) Enable BFD in the NSX and the VTEP. OS10 complies with RFC5880 for Bidirectional Forwarding Detection.
Configuration notes
  • NSX controller-provisioned VXLAN is not supported if an OS10 switch operates in OpenFlow-only mode.
  • Only one mode of VxLAN provisioning is supported at a time: NSX controller-based, static VXLAN, or BGP EVPN.
  • An OS10 switch does not send VXLAN access port statistics to the NSX controller.
  • Controller-provisioned VXLAN is not supported on VTEPs configured as peers in a VLT domain. Only VTEPs in standalone mode are supported.
