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 entry for that MAC.
