difference between Subnets in EPG and Subnets in BD

Hi everyone,

I have some questions,

1. What is a difference between Subnets in EPG and Subnets in BD?

2. How many Subnets(in 1 Bridge Domain) can I create in tenant Common?

 

Thanks,

tienbui

Hello

regarding question 1) no real difference in where the subnet is defined. Under the EPG it is expected that the subnet will be used for shared services like route leaking for inter-tenant communications

as per the number of subsets in 1 BD under tenant common, I would have to check internally or recreate to find out. 

Ill report back back here with my findings! Thanks for using support forums! 

The only other consideration on whether a subnet should be defined at the BD vs. EPG level is in regards to route advertising.  If you have a L3 external peering via OSP/EIGRP/BGP, and you'd like to advertise the Tenant prefix being used, the subnet must be created under the BD and set to "public".

The common tenant has no different limitations to scale than any other tenant.  The scalability guide should provide the relevant info for your release.

Thanks Pita and Robert.

Can you share to me, how many maximum subnets per BD ?

Thanks for your support.

In standalone, there is no limit to the amount of IP's you can place under an SVI.  Each additonal subnet is added as a secondary IP under the SVI:

I would think this is the same for ACI :)

Hi Robert,

In regarding in the 'public' 'private' subnet mark, I think either Cisco document is wrong or there is a software bug on ACI 1.2.1k.

My subnet is advertised over external layer3 out eBGP session no matter where I configure it (BD or eBGP), and no matter what type (private to vrf or public).

"1900-ACI#show ip route bgp

      10.0.0.0/24 is subnetted, 1 subnets
B        10.112.1.0 [20/0] via 172.16.1.10, 00:01:34

Hello

That is interesting. Could you please provide the following output from your border leaf? (the one that connects to the external router)

show ip prefix-list

as well as this moquery command from your APIC. where the subnet "17.17.2.1" can be replaced with your 10.112.1.0

admin@rtp1-apic1:~> moquery -c fvSubnet -f 'fv.Subnet.ip=="17.17.2.1/24"'

The prefix list seems empty for 10.x.x.x range:

ip prefix-list IPv4-2621440-any-18-2555904-shared-svc-leak: 1 entries
   seq 1 permit 172.20.1.0/24

For this:

ip prefix-list IPv4-peer21-2457600-exc-int-inferred-exportDST: 2 entries
   seq 2 permit 130.112.3.1/24
   seq 4 permit 130.112.1.1/24

This prefix-list is not modified by APIC at all regardless what type of subnet I configure them.
