Configuring MAC Pinning for All Pseudowires of the VPLS Routing Instance (LDP and BGP) for Logical Systems

 

A MAC move occurs when a MAC address frequently appears on a different physical interface than the one it was learned on. Frequent MAC moves indicate the presence of loops. To avoid loops across interfaces in virtual switches in logical systems, you can configure MAC pinning. A set of logical systems within a single router can handle the functions previously handled by several small routers.

This topic describes how to configure MAC pinning for all pseudowires of the VPLS routing instance for logical systems.

To configure MAC pinning for all pseudowires of the VPLS routing instance for logical systems:

  1. Configure the interface by specifying the encapsulation.
  2. Create the logical system by specifying the name and the trunk interface on the logical unit.
  3. Configure the VPLS routing instance.
  4. In configuration mode, verify the configuration.
