  • Page 4: Configuring Evb

    Configuring EVB Edge Virtual Bridging (EVB) allows virtual machines (VMs) on a physical server to obtain bridge relay services through a common bridge port. It enables coordinated configuration and management of bridge services for VMs. Overview Data center virtualization includes network virtualization, storage virtualization, and server virtualization. Server virtualization uses specific virtualization software such as VMware to create VMs on a single physical server.

  • Page 5: Basic Concepts

    Basic concepts Figure 2 shows the components on the EVB station and EVB bridge. Figure 2 EVB architecture Edge Relay (ER)—Transfers packets between one URP and one or more DRPs. An ER has one or • more DRPs and one URP. Both URP and DRPs are called ER ports. An EVB station can have multiple ERs.

  • Page 6: Protocols And Standards

    VDP manages the association between a VSI and a station-facing bridge port (SBP) on a bridge. VDP uses the Edge Control Protocol (ECP) to carry VDP TLVs. A VDP TLV comprises the VSIID, VSI type, and VSI version. When a station creates a VM, it sends a VDP pre-associate, pre-associate with resource reservation, or associate packet to the bridge.

  • Page 7: Configuring Lldp

    A default S-channel is created on an interface after EVB is enabled on the interface. Both SCID and SVID are 1. After an S-channel is created, an S-channel interface or S-channel aggregate interface is created and operates in access mode. Do not enable both EVB and VLAN mapping, or both EVB and TRILL, or both EVB and QinQ on the same interface.

  • Page 8: Configuring Vdp Negotiation Parameters

    The VSI manager ID TLV in a VDP packet carries the VSI manager's IP address. If the value for the TLV is 0, the VDP packet does not contain a VSI manager's IP address, so the bridge communicates with the specified default VSI manager.

  • Page 9: Configuring An S-channel

    Configuring an S-channel Creating an S-channel An S-channel is automatically created by CDCP, and the system automatically saves the configuration in the configuration file on the bridge. You can also manually create an S-channel by performing this task. If an (SCID, SVID) pair for an S-channel is created both automatically and manually, the one automatically created takes precedence.

IMPORTANT: • For an S-channel with the RR mode disabled, do not disable its MAC address learning function.

  • Page 12: Configuring Vsi Filters

    Configuring VSI filters The EVB bridge uses a VSI filter to identify VSI traffic for a VM. Filters are usually assigned by a VSI manager. You can manually create or remove VSI filters through this task. A VSI filter contains a set of VID values, MAC addresses, and group ID values. EVB supports the following filter info formats: VLAN ID •...
