With two Cisco ME3600 (or similar MPLS & VPLS capable devices) running recent code [15.3(3)S], is it possible to show the MAC addresses passing over a standard MPLS encapsulated xconnect?
In the lab as an example I have configured an xconnect from an EVC on Switch1 to an SVI on Switch2 with Switch2 having an access port in the same VLAN (VLAN 1);
Switch1: interface gi0/18 switchport trunk allowed vlan none switchport mode trunk service instance 1 ethernet encapsulation untagged xconnect 22.214.171.124 123456 encapsulation mpls Switch2: int gi0/18 switchport switchport access vlan 1 int vlan 1 xconnect 126.96.36.199 123456 encapsulation mpls
Everything works fine. I have a test PC connected to each end of the pseudowire which can ping each other and the IP assigned to the SVI for VLAN 1 on Switch2.
Is it possible to see their MAC addresses on the switches so I can see what MACs are being carried over this pseudowire?
To the best of my knowledge this is only achievable when using VFIs on IOS-XR (haven't tested VFI on IOS), is that correct?
