TitleVOSS Question about DVR Leaf only
Question
Is v-IST configuration supported on VOSS switches on DvR Leaf devices without DvR Controller?
Environment
  • VOSS
  • VSP4000
  • VSP7200
  • VSP8000
Answer
Yes, DvR Leaf node support v-IST configuration also without DvR Controller node, because only L3 configuration is shared by DvR Controller and not L2 configuration.

Eligibility criteria for a Leaf node:
  • support the configuration of basic parameters of IP Multicast over Fabric Connect, such as the system ID, nickname, B-VLANs, SPBM instance, area, peer system ID and virtual BMAC.
  • support the configuration of a physical port as either an SPB NNI interface, a FLEX-UNI interface or an FA interface.
  • support the configuration of an MLT as either an SPB NNI interface, a FLEX-UNI interface or an FA interface
  • support the configuration of an SMLT as a Flex-UNI Interface or an FA Interface
  • support the configuration of Layer 2 VSN I-SID instances of type ELAN
  • support the configuration of FLEX-UNI end-points as part of a Layer 2 VSN
  • support FA Server functionality on FA enabled interfaces
  • support SMLT and vIST
  • support the configuration of a in-band management interface for in-band management of the node.

Configuration limitations on a DvR Leaf node:
  • You cannot configure Layer 3 (for example, IP interfaces, IP routing and VRFs) on a Leaf node. You can only perform Layer 2 configuration.
  • You cannot configure platform VLANs.
