No need for L3 Domain for an L3 External connection?

In my lab I have an L3 out doing OSPF and everything works. My VMs in my VMM domain can reach the network in the external OSPF domain. However, I do not have an L3 domain connected to my L3 out. I was expecting to have to create one, as I did when I was testing an L2/Bridged external network.

Why do I need a "Domain" connector for L2, but not L3? This kind of threw me for a loop as I understood an AEP was required for externally connectivity, but without the Domain, there is obviously no AEP for this port.

Thanks,

-Bryan

Hi Bryan,

If you don't have an L3 Domain associated to your L3Out, then you should have an "Invalid Path" fault under the L3Out as a result. Can you confirm you don't have that fault?
