Fabric Attach Server Mode

Fabric Attach operates in server mode whenever BGP Auto-peering is configured or an LTEP (Local Tunnel End Point) is created. The Fabric Attach server may receive mapping requests from any of several sources (CLI, client/proxy requests using LLDP, BGP, OSPFv2, or network authentication services such as RADIUS and policy). Since the CLI prevents conflicting CLI-sourced mappings from being requested, a mapping request from the CLI is entered into the database as “accepted” and conflicting mappings in the database have their status set to “rejected”. When a mapping is requested by a client or proxy, it is entered into the database.
