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);
switchport trunk allowed vlan none
switchport mode trunk
service instance 1 ethernet
xconnect 184.108.40.206 123456 encapsulation mpls
switchport access vlan 1
int vlan 1
xconnect 220.127.116.11 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?
