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 have a C240 M5 with a VIC 1457. We want to use this as a standalone server connected to a 9300 switch with 2 x 10g network ports. how in the world do you configure the VIC card ports in access mode? i've removed the default port channel option and...
I´m going to add a second POD to the Fabric and I have a question about one APIC.Right now 3 APICS are on POD 1 . But once I configure Multi-Pod and both PODs are up, I would like to move one of the APICs to the second POD. To do so, I understand I need t...
We have a recently installed MDS 9148T. This switch is running an HTTPS service with a self-signed certificate. I've created a trustpoint and generated a CSR and obtained and installed a certificate. I disabled/enabled the http-server but it still present...
Hi all, I know that our APICs use out-of-band interface for external connections. But I want to check whether our controllers reach a website from internet. Unfortunately there is no telnet commands in APIC and leaf switches even in...
