    Hi All

     

    I am trying to configure evpn inside virtual switch created on my QFX5200 switch.

    I am following this guide for the same:

    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/task/configuration/evpn-vs-configuring-qfx-series.html

     

    But I am not able to create vlan and vxlan inside my virtual switch. 

    Following is my config:

    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 vtep-source-interface lo0.0
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 instance-type virtual-switch
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 vlan-id 500
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 routing-interface irb.500
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 vxlan vni 500
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 vxlan ingress-node-replication
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 route-distinguisher 192.168.0.212:500
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 vrf-import VS_VLAN500_IMP
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 vrf-target target:1:500
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 protocols evpn encapsulation vxlan
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 protocols evpn extended-vni-list 500
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 protocols evpn multicast-mode ingress-replication
    set routing-instances VS_VLAN500 protocols evpn default-gateway no-gateway-community

    But I am getting following error on commiting this configuration:

    [edit routing-instances VS_VLAN500 vlan-id]
      'vlan-id 500'
        'vlan-id' statement can be included only for a VPLS or EVPN instance
    [edit routing-instances VS_VLAN500 routing-interface]
      'routing-interface irb.500'
        routing-interface must be configured within bridge-domains for 'instance-type virtual-switch'
    [edit routing-instances VS_VLAN500]
      'vxlan'
        vxlan must be configured within bridge-domains for 'instance-type virtual-switch'
    [edit routing-instances VS_VLAN500]
      'vxlan'
        vxlan in routing-instance is valid only for instance-type vpls or evpn
    [edit routing-instances VS_VLAN500 protocols evpn multicast-mode]

    Does it means creating vlans and vxlans inside a virtual switch is not supported for QFX5200? Or am I doing something wrong here ?

    Hi
    The virtual switch is only supported on QFX10000 series high end devices.

    Hope this helps
