Hello Everyone

 

Can you help with a query regarding the Cisco Catalyst 9200. Cisco documentation states the following regarding the Catalyst 9200:

 

"For Catalyst 9200 Series switches the maximum is 4 VRFs on the modular models and 1 VRF on fixed models."

 

My questions are:

a) Does this limit exclude the global routing table which in an SD-Access deployment is the INFRA VN?
b) Does this limit exclude the built-in Mgmt-vrf?

 

Thank you

I have just tried configuring 4 VRF's on a 9200L and it stopped at adding one saying the maximum VRF's is 2. There are the default Management VRF and one that I have setup.

 

How do I enable it for four?

Hello Stuart

 

The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series is made up of modular (C9200) and fixed (C9200L) switch models and the according to the FAQ - https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/catalyst-9000/nb-06-cat9k-swit-plat-faq-cte-en.html, the maximum number of VRFs that you can configure on the Cisco Catalyst 9300, 9400, 9500 and 9600 Series switches is 256. For Catalyst 9200 Series switches the maximum is 4 VRFs on the modular models and 1 VRF on fixed models

 

Since you have a 9200L which is a fixed model, you are limited to the built-in or pre-configured management VRF and an optional user-configurable VRF. You will not be able to configure 4.

 

All the best

Not forgetting the enhanced VN SKU's that support 32 VRF's
