N5K VRF ISSUE

Hi guys,

Iam having trouble to configure routing between 2 vrfs i got.

after a few troubleshooting method we figure out that the MAC address of the port 1/X and the port it`s connected 1/Y has the same mac address.

So in this case the traffic wont go throw since they have the same mac.

Anyone have a suggestion?

N5K VRF ISSUE

Hello Liad,

you should configue manually a MAC address on one of the two ports if this is supported on NX-OS

We could do this on SVIs on C6500 and this fixed the issue

Hope to help

N5K VRF ISSUE

Yea this solution is aviliable for 6500 only.

In nexus 5k you cant change the mac address.

what happed is the n5k every VDC has it`s own mac address. (and since you got only 1 vdc on the 5k you have 1 mac).

The solution was to create a vrrp and use it`s unique virtual mac address to establish the connection.

Thanks for your help!!!
