Hierarchy Level


Configure static remote VXLAN tunnel endpoints (VTEPs). This statement configures VTEPs at the global level in a Layer 2 (L2) VXLAN gateway device. Specify one or more loopback addresses of the remote VTEPs.

You don’t configure EVPN as part of a static VXLAN configuration. However, on platforms that support EVPN-VXLAN and static VXLAN, you can configure EVPN-VXLAN and static VXLAN on the same device if the two configurations use different sets of remote peer VTEPs.

On some platforms, you can use this statement with the static-remote-vtep-list statement to also configure remote VTEPs at the VLAN or bridge domain level. When you use the static-remote-vtep-list option, you must configure the remote-vtep-list statement to specify the remote VTEPs at the global level as follows:

  • In an L2 routing instance of type virtual-switch at the [edit routing-instances name] hierarchy level.

  • In the default switch instance at the [edit switch-options] hierarchy level.

Then configure the static-remote-vtep-list statement at the VLAN or bridge domain level in the same L2 routing instance or the default switch instance at the following hierarchy levels:

  • In a virtual-switch L2 routing instance:

    • VLAN level: [edit routing-instances name vlans name vxlan]

    • Bridge domain level: [edit routing-instances name bridge-domains name vxlan]

  • In the default switch instance:

    • VLAN level: [edit vlans name vxlan]

    • Bridge domain level: [edit bridge-domains name vxlan]


On the PTX10000 line of routers that run Junos OS Evolved, we support static VXLANs as follows:

  • Only in routing instances of type virtual-switch.

  • At the global and VLAN levels.
