Virtual eXtensible LAN (VXLAN) is a MAC-in-UDP technology that provides Layer 2 connectivity between distant network sites across an IP network. VXLAN is typically used in data centers for multitenant services.
This Technical Configuration Guide describes the Layer 2 forwarding processes. It describes how to configure a VXLAN tunnel between an HPE FlexFabric 12900 and an HPE 5406R that support VXLAN feature. Please note that Only FC, FE, and FX cards support VXLANs.
