ce_evpn_bd_vni – Manages EVPN VXLAN Network Identifier (VNI) on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • Manages Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) VXLAN Network Identifier (VNI) configurations on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
bridge_domain_id
- / required
Specify an existed bridge domain (BD).The value is an integer ranging from 1 to 16777215.
evpn
-
    Choices:
  • enable ←
  • disable
Create or delete an EVPN instance for a VXLAN in BD view.
route_distinguisher
-
Configures a route distinguisher (RD) for a BD EVPN instance. The format of an RD can be as follows
1) 2-byte AS number:4-byte user-defined number, for example, 1:3. An AS number is an integer ranging from 0 to 65535, and a user-defined number is an integer ranging from 0 to 4294967295. The AS and user-defined numbers cannot be both 0s. This means that an RD cannot be 0:0.
2) Integral 4-byte AS number:2-byte user-defined number, for example, 65537:3. An AS number is an integer ranging from 65536 to 4294967295, and a user-defined number is an integer ranging from 0 to 65535.
3) 4-byte AS number in dotted notation:2-byte user-defined number, for example, 0.0:3 or 0.1:0. A 4-byte AS number in dotted notation is in the format of x.y, where x and y are integers ranging from 0 to 65535.
4) A user-defined number is an integer ranging from 0 to 65535. The AS and user-defined numbers cannot be both 0s. This means that an RD cannot be 0.0:0.
5) 32-bit IP address:2-byte user-defined number. For example, 192.168.122.15:1. An IP address ranges from 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255, and a user-defined number is an integer ranging from 0 to 65535.
6) 'auto' specifies the RD that is automatically generated.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Manage the state of the resource.
vpn_target_both
-
Add VPN targets to both the import and export VPN target lists of a BD EVPN instance. The format is the same as route_distinguisher.
vpn_target_export
-
Add VPN targets to the export VPN target list of a BD EVPN instance. The format is the same as route_distinguisher.
vpn_target_import
- / required
Add VPN targets to the import VPN target list of a BD EVPN instance. The format is the same as route_distinguisher.

Notes

Note

  • Ensure that EVPN has been configured to serve as the VXLAN control plane when state is present.
  • Ensure that a bridge domain (BD) has existed when state is present.
  • Ensure that a VNI has been created and associated with a broadcast domain (BD) when state is present.
  • If you configure evpn:false to delete an EVPN instance, all configurations in the EVPN instance are deleted.
  • After an EVPN instance has been created in the BD view, you can configure an RD using route_distinguisher parameter in BD-EVPN instance view.
  • Before configuring VPN targets for a BD EVPN instance, ensure that an RD has been configured for the BD EVPN instance
  • If you unconfigure route_distinguisher, all VPN target attributes for the BD EVPN instance will be removed at the same time.
  • When using state:absent, evpn is not supported and it will be ignored.
  • When using state:absent to delete VPN target attributes, ensure the configuration of VPN target attributes has existed and otherwise it will report an error.
