Configuring an EVPN tenant is required for EVPN Route Server mode.

To configure an EVPN tenant, you must specify one or more VLAN-VNI mappings.


  1. With admin privileges, log in to NSX Manager.
  2. Click Networking > EVPN Tenant > Add EVPN Tenant.
  3. Enter a name.
  4. For Overlay Transport Zone, select one from the drop-down list.
  5. Select an existing EVPN/VXLAN VNI pool or create a new pool by clicking the menu icon (three dots).
  6. For VLAN-VNI Mapping, click Set to create one or more mappings.
    The VNIs must be within the range specified in the EVPN/VXLAN VNI pool. You can specify a single value for VLAN and VNI, or a range of values such as 10-20 for VLAN and 77010-77020 for VNI. For each VLAN-VNI mapping specified in the EVPN tenant, a special segment for the VNI will be created automatically. You can see the VRF segments by navigating to Networking > Segments.
  7. Click Save.
