OTV question

Hi

We would like to test OTV in the lab but we only have one N7K and a ASR1K. Wondering if the N7K can build OTV with ASR1K?

Thanks. Leo

OTV question

Hello there,

I did the same question same time ago here:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2233262

That's the answer:

"Mixing the two types of devices is not supported at this time when the devices will be placed within the same site.

However, using Cisco Nexus 7000s in one site and Cisco ASR 1000s at another site for OTV is fully supported.

For this scenario, please keep the separate scalability numbers in mind for the two different devices, because you will have to account for the lowest common denominator."
