Subject: RE: VxLAN support question

Hi Alexei,

I run into following issue:

root@...server:/home/andrew# ip li add vxlan0 type vxlan id 42 remote local dev eth1
====> OK

root@...server:/home/andrew# ip li add vxlan1 type vxlan id 42 remote local dev eth2
==> RTNETLINK answers: File exists

Do you know why Linux kernel reject second CLI ?

Tunnels to connect TWO VTEPs using same VNI.

creating 1k vxlan devices is doable, but you probably want to take a look at recently added metadata mode of vxlan.
Also sounds like for each vni you'd need a different multicast group?
What fabric going to support that?
