Disjoint layer-2 networks are required if you have two or more Ethernet “clouds” that never connect, but must be accessed by servers or virtual machines located in the same Cisco UCS domain. The configuration for disjoint L2 networks works on a principle of selective exclusion. Traffic for a VLAN that is designated as part of a disjoint network can only travel along an uplink Ethernet port or port channel that is specifically assigned to that VLAN, and is selectively excluded from all other uplink ports and port channels. By default, data traffic in Cisco UCS works on a principle of mutual inclusion. All traffic for all VLANs and upstream networks travels along all uplink ports and port channels.
Disjoint Layer-2 features:
Non-symmetric VLANs on uplink
Multiple Layer 2 networks upstream
Native support in End-Host mode allows simplification of configuration (no need for Switch mode)
By default 1.4 behavior is preserved (all VLANs present in all uplinks)
Hardware independent feature (supported in 6100 and 6200 FI)
Max of 31 disjointed Layer 2 domains supported
Overlapping VLAns are not supported
Per VLAN broadcast/multicast listener
System must be running UCS 2.x version. User should have knowledge of basic UCS configuration.
We recently installed some Gen2 leafs in our ACI environment (all other leafs are Gen1). I noticed that the best practice document suggests enabling the "Disable Remote EP Learn" feature and "Enforce Subnet Check". All of our VRFs policy enforcement are s...
Hi all , Nexus 7ks are connected to nexus 5ks as per the diagram. nexus 7ks -- Prod VDC -- Topology 1 and Non prod VDC ---> Topology 2. Fabricpath is configured between nexus 7ks and nexus 56128. Whenever we are creating new vlan 30...
For some reason I can't find the answer to this...MSO gets deployed as a cluster of 3-nodes. Done it, been there, got the t-shirt, but.....Can it get deployed for more than 3-nodes? A question from a customer that I can't find an answer for.I can't see wh...
