Configures the assisted replication role on a switch. In addition, if the switch role is leaf, this command also configures the default selected replicator for all virtual networks created afterwards.
|virtual-network||Designates changing the virtual overlay network configuration.|
|replication-role||Sets the replication role used for VXLAN replication of unknown unicast, broadcast, and multicast traffic.|
|rnve||Sets regular network virtualization edge node (RNVE) to use head-end replication (default).|
|replicator||Sets replicate tunneled broadcast and multicast traffic to leaf nodes.|
|leaf||Sets tunnel broadcast and multicast traffic to replicator.|
|selected-replicator-default||Sets the default target to send broadcast and multicast traffic to perform replication.|
|ipaddress||Sets the IPv4 address of a remote tunnel endpoint configured as a replicator.|
If not specified, the replicator role is set to RNVE.
The selected-replicator-default value is only applied to currently configured virtual networks if the role is changing to leaf. It is always applied to virtual networks you create afterwards. To change the selected-replicator for already configured virtual networks, use the command configure virtual-network vn_name selected-replicator [ipaddress ipaddress | none].
Do not configure a switch as the new replicator until the prior replicator is unconfigured because packet duplication might occur.
To remove configuration of the assisted replication feature, set the replication role to rnve, and the switch reverts back to head-end replication.
The following example configures a node as a replicator:
# configure virtual-network replication-role replicator
# configure virtual-network replication-role leaf selected-replicator-default 126.96.36.199
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 31.1.
This command is supported on the ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, 5720 series switches, and stacks with 5320, 5420, 5520, 5720 slots only.
