vLAN Configuration on Bare Metal


This guide explains the vLAN configuration on the bare metal.

Configuring vLAN Interface

Avi Vantage supports vLAN trunking on bare-metal servers. If the Avi Controller is deployed on a bare-metal server, the individual physical links of the server can be configured to support 802.1q-tagged virtual LANs (vLANs). Each vLAN interface has its own IP address. Multiple vLAN interfaces per physical link are supported.

Note: Avi Vantage supports vLAN interface configuration on Linux server cloud as well. The UI configuration remains the same as explained in this document.

To configure a vLAN interface on a bare-metal server running Avi Vantage:

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure, and click on Service Engine (SE) where the vLAN interface is to be created.
  2. Click on Edit button, and the following pop-up window appears.
  3. Click on Create vLAN Interface.
  4. Select the parent interface from the drop-down list, and fill in the vLAN and IP Address fields, then click on Save. The VLAN interface appears on the Service Engine Edit page.
  5. Click on Save option again to commit the change.
