It depends on how you want to use the link. You can configure your MLAG normally, then have a dedicated VLAN run atop this MLAG and configure routing on this VLAN. This will work for static routing using the virtual IP as a next hop. If you perform dynamic routing, like BGP, then it's still possible, but then you have to establish a session with each ...

It looks like you're configuring EVPN Pure Type-5 routes (i.e. https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-bess-evpn-prefix-advertisement-11#section-4.4.1) with VXLAN transport, this is not supported on MX80/104 until 18.2R1 (see the related feature explorer entry). MPLS transport, however, is supported as of 17.1R1.

TLDR: Updated JunOS to the latest recommended version for QFX 5110 as per this JTAC document: https://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB21476&actp=METADATA#qfx_series Junos 18.4R2-S5 and subsequent service releases / 20.2R2 This is how I fixed the initial empty MAC table bug: After rebooting both switches, I started seeing type 2 ...

I know this is already answered but let me add some colors, As Ricky mentioned VTEP still need to know where are the mac/host located and to find them it need to send ARP. It use IR or Multicast as vehicle to send ARP packets to other VTEP, it's no different than classic ethernet design (This method isn't scalable). To improve it EVPN born which still use ...

VXLAN is an L2 tunneling protocol over IP. Basically, the tunnel is a virtual link, so you just route that traffic like you would route from/to any other link. The inner frame is encapsulated by UDP and in turn by IP, so their headers plus the inner L2 header eat into the MTU of an inner packet. Using a larger outer MTU for VXLAN transport is highly ...

First of all, you got 6 switches but you named them in pairs. If these switches are not stacked, just use leaf-1 to leaf -4 and boarder leaf-1 boarder-leaf 2.Better notation. I am assuming that you are thinking of using eVPN in your topology. you can use all topology as you suggested as a layer 2 network, do not use any VLAN IP address, and set your ...

A frame's or packet's payload cannot exceed the maximum frame/packet size minus the overhead. VXLAN is VLAN-enabled L2-tunneling over UDP. It encapsulates Ethernet frames in UDP datagrams, in turn encapsulated in IP, in turn encapsulated in Ethernet (simplest case). Since that overhead eats away 50 bytes of the payload capacity, you'd need to use "baby ...
