Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 19.1R1.

Description

Specifies the proxy MAC address.

When CE devices connect directly to gateway devices, configure the MAC proxy on the gateway devices with the irb option. Junos OS will use the virtual gateway MAC address or the MAC address of the IRB interface.

In a spine-and-leaf network where the routing is performed on the spine devices, configure the MAC proxy on the leaf devices to use the actual MAC address of the IRB interface.

Options

irbReply with the manually configured virtual gateway, automatically derived virtual gateway, or IRB MAC address. The virtual gateway MAC address takes precedence over a IRB MAC address. If the MAC address of the IRB interface is not configured, Junos OS uses a MAC address derived from the physical interface.
proxy-mac-addressReply with the configured proxy MAC address for all requests. A configured proxy MAC address should correspond to the virtual or physical gateway MAC address that is deployed on centralized Layer 3 gateway IRB interfaces.
