Networking Requirements

Figure 1 VXLAN Networking Topology with Centralized Gateway Deployment

As shown in Figure 1, in the centralized gateway scenario, an enterprise has its own servers in different data centers, Server 1 belongs to VLAN 200, Server 1 belongs to VLAN 100 and Server 3 belongs to VLAN 300. Server 1, Server 2 and Server 3 are located in different network segments. Cross-subnet packet forwarding needs to be implemented through a centralized Layer 3 gateway.

Configure different servers on different network segments to communicate with each other through a VXLAN centralized Layer 3 gateway by the following roadmap:

  1.  Configure static routes on Switch 1, Switch 2, and Switch 3 respectively to ensure network connectivity at the underlay network.
  2.  Configure VXLAN access network on Switch 1, Switch 2 and Switch 3 respectively to differentiate service flow.
  3.  Configure VXLAN tunnels on Switch 1, Switch 2 and Switch 3 respectively to forward service flow.
  4.  To enable users of different network segments to communicate with each other, configure VXLAN Layer 3 gateway on Switch 3. The following steps include how to configure VXLAN Layer 3 gateway:

            a) Configure VXLAN mapping of VNI to VLAN:

                 set vxlans vni <vni_id> vlan <vlan_id>

            b) Configure L3 VLAN interface:

         set vlans vlan-id <vlan_id> l3-interface <interface_name>

     c) Configure the IP the L3 VLAN interface:

         set l3-interface vlan-interface <interface_name> address <IP_address> prefix-length <prefix_length>

Procedure

This section describes the steps of configuring VXLAN for different subnets on Switch1, Switch2 and Switch3.
