Per Port VLAN

Introduction

Customer needs to use the same VLAN for two different EPGs?  Encap already in use fault? PPV is for you!

 

Prerequisites

 

Requirements

  • Seperate VLAN pool for VLANs to be duplicated (namespace)
  • EPGs need to have unique BD (can be same VRF or different)
  • Interface Policy Group needs to have L2 Interface policy for Port Local scope

 

Configure

  

    1. Configure Unique(different) VLAN pools with the same encap inside

 

    1. Enable port local scope for the Interface Policy Group for the existing interface already using the VLAN


  1. Under the Tenant, create a new BD and EPG for the VLAN.

 

Verify

 

The output below from ELTMC shows two sets of BD/EPG. the FD_VLAN for 373 is shown twice but its important to note the Fabric_encap is unique. This fabric_encap is generated based on the VLAN pool/namespace. Thats why its required to have a unique VLAN pool, so that the fabric_encap VXLAN/vnid is unique.

module-1# 

Note: BD1/EPG1 has encap vlan-373 and uniquely identified in the fabric as BD-16416668/EPG-9809. BD2/EPG2 has encap vlan-373 again BUT the fabric_encap for the BD/EPG is different than before BD-16416668/EPG-10592

 

Also interesting to note is the HW column. This shows the front panel ASIC VLAN and how it is translated uniquely.

With the output above we queried ELTMC again but this time for information on how the interface is programmed. Highlighted we see the scope field is set to local. This allows the front panel ASIC to have extra translations as well as have ACI classify traffic with (vlan, port)

 

The moquery below for the concrete vlan "vlanCktEp" and filtered by "encap==vlan-373" shows two objects on that particular leaf. Highlighted are the duplicated encap vlan and unique DN and EPG DN as well

Hi Dpita,

How did you manage to issue the 

show system internal eltmc info vlan brief

command?  When I try, the system only lets me type 

show system internal eltm

I'm running version 2.1.1(h) on the APIC, 12.1.1(h)  on the 9Ks

Regards

This is a line card command. Use vsh_lc to enter this mode. 

leaf1#

leaf1#

leaf1# vsh_lc
vsh_lc
module-1# show sys int eltmc info vlan br

Of course - I should have looked at the module-1# prompt!

Thanks

Hello Daniel,

we have got the message "Encap Already Used in Another EPG" you mentionned at the beginning of this port; without apparent reason

I understand this might be solved by the PPV option you described above;

what I don't understand is why this message appears ;

we had a 1st UCS (UCS1) connected via VPC on 2 LEAFs 201 & 202, and using 1 static path encap vlan 11 on EPG11 : no problem

when adding a 2nd UCS (UCS2) also connected via another VPC on the 2 same LEAFs 201  & 202, and adding 1 static path encap for the same VLAN 11 on the same EPG1, we got this "Encap Already Used in Another EPG" message

any idea why such a message appears ?

thanks

HI,

Both VPC cannot have same encap unless the VPC port scope is local.Atleast 1 VPC has to be local in this case.Also,The two epgs should be in different BD's.Please configure as above and assign same vlan,you will not see the problem.
