I have two 3560s connected via a Layer 3 portchannel. I have two vlans on switch A and one VLAN on switch B that i want to be in the same VRF. The rest of the VLANs on both switches i dont want in a VRF...

Im using OSPF for VRF and non VRF router advertisements...


how can i do this with an L3 link connecting the two switches?


TIA

Shaun, you can do either of the options below.


1) Configure the L3 portchannel to L2 and have a vlan created for pure L3 between the switches and another vlan for the VRF.


2) If you dont want to configure it as a trunk then you can create a GRE tunnel between the switches and populate it with the VRF.


Both options would take care of switching you non VRF and VRF traffic.
