OTV design

Unanswered Question
Sep 9th, 2010


We want to use OTV for L2 across 2 sites. Can  I continue to use existing gateway to the subnet but introduce N7 to the L2 doman and extend the VLAN across? If  use N7K to replace the existing gateway to you need use a separate vDC?


I have this problem too.

From my understanding of OTV you would have a seperate VDC in which your interface Vlan will reside.  You would trunk the vlans to the default VDC and then configure the interface overlay with the join interface being a L3 link between sites and use the otv extend-vlan command to extend the vlans you want to have accessable at your seperate site.  Vlans will need to be created in all places, but the interface Vlan will only reside on the second VDC where you trunked it from.  You would need the same configuration on the other end as well.  If you dont have the VDC license you would have to trunk from one 7K to another and then build your interface overlay there.
