Reviewing the Internet Draft for VXLAN, it is recommended that each VNI be mapped to a different multicast address for BUM distribution. However, in the EOS documentation, it appears that you can only assign a single multicast address to the vxlan1 interface. How can you specify per-VNI mappings for interop with other, non-Arista implementations, like VMWare’s dvSwitch, which allows mapping VNIs to separate multicast group addresses? Are we forced to map all VNI’s to a single multicast address, everywhere, to support standards-based VXLAN?
Can the unicast flood list interop with any other vendor’s VXLAN architectures?
