Configure the switch to preserve the original VLAN tag (in the inner Ethernet packet) when performing Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) encapsulation.


ARP suppression is automatically disabled when you encapsulate VLAN traffic for EVPN-VXLAN by configuring encapsulate-inner-vlan and its equivalent converse statement decapsulate-accept-inner-vlan. As a result, you may observe ARP packets being sent by the device.


The original tag is dropped when the packet is encapsulated.
