Follow this workflow to configure EVPN with Inline mode.

Prerequisites

A typical BGP EVPN Inline mode deployment topology has the following characteristics:

  • There are point-to-point uplinks between edge nodes and external routers over individual VLAN segments.
  • There are BGP peering sessions between edge nodes and external routers using loopback interfaces.
  • Loopback reachability can be achieved using either static routing or OSPF protocol.

The following diagram depicts a typical BGP EVPN Inline mode deployment topology:

Procedure

  1. Create a VNI pool. See Add an EVPN/VXLAN VNI Pool.
  2. Configure a tier-0 gateway and enable EVPN. See Configure a Tier-0 Gateway for EVPN Inline Mode.
  3. Configure BGP neighbors. See Configure BGP Neighbors for a Tier-0 Gateway.
  4. Configure a tier-0 VRF gateway. See Configure a Tier-0 VRF Gateway for EVPN Inline Mode.
  5. Verify the BGP neighbor session status.
    1. Select Networking > Tier-0 Gateways.
    2. Click the menu icon (three dots) of the tier-0 gateway and select Generate BGP Summary.
    3. Verify that Connection Status for the neighbor is Established and that Address Families displays L2VPN EVPN.
  6. Verify the tier-0 VRF gateway forwarding table.
    1. Select Networking > Tier-0 Gateways.
    2. Click the menu icon (three dots) of the tier-0 VRF gateway and select Download Forwarding Table.
    3. Verify that the remote routes received from the external router are installed in the tier-0 VRF gateway forwarding table.
