• Automating L2 EVPN instances deployment using CloudVision Portal

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The intention of this article is to show how CloudVision Portal can be used to deploy L2 EVPN instances on one switch, or many switches, using a CloudVision Portal configlet builder.

A complete demonstration of how CloudVision Portal is used to deploy an EVPN instance and EVPN fabric can be found here

The configlet builder example provided at GitHub Arista repo covers L2 EVPN deployments using MLAG, single interface, VLAN trunk, access VLAN, symmetric routing and asymmetric routing. The configlet builder example can be used on top of any EVPN underlay and overlay. Below is a step by step procedure is described to import and start to use the configlet builder in CloudVision Portal.

1. Download the configlet builder example at Arista GutHub repo: L2 EVPN configlet builder

2. Import the configlet builder in CloudVision Portal through going to “configlets” and use the import option

3. To use the configlet builder, goto a container that has EVPN underlay and overlay configured leaf switches or select a single switch that has EVPN underlay and overlay configured.

4. Use the “Manage Configlet” option for the container or device

5. Fill out the information for the particular provisioning needed to be done

6. Click “Generate” and perform needed validations and save in the “Network Provisioning” view so that tasks are created

7. Execute tasks or use “Change Ctrl” to execute tasks with snapshots and rollback options

The EVPN instance is now deployed.
