configure fdb vlan vxlan

configure fdb { mac_addr | broadcast | unknown-unicast | unknown-multicast } vlan vlan_name [ add | delete ] vxlan { vr vr_name } {ipaddress} remote_ipaddress


This command allows you to add or remove remote VTEPs to a MAC address.

Syntax Description

mac_addr Forwarding destination(s) for this MAC.
broadcast Forwarding destination(s) for broadcast traffic.
unknown-unicast Forwarding destination(s) for unknown unicast traffic.
unknown-multicast Forwarding destination(s) for unknown multicast traffic.
add Add to configuration.
delete Delete from configuration.
vr VR/VRF instance the IPv4 address is configured on.
vr_name An existing VR/VRF name.
ipaddress Configure the IP address of the remote tunnel endpoint to which the MAC needs to be bound.
remote_ipaddress IPv4 address of the remote tunnel endpoint.



Usage Guidelines

You must first use the “[create | delete] fdb” command to add the first remote VTEP, and then issue this command to add additional remote VTEPs for the same MAC. You cannot add a remote VTEP to a static entry that has ports or blackhole configured. When the last VTEP is deleted, ExtremeXOS deletes the FDB (forwarding database) entry for that MAC.

This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 21.1.
