    1. I can probably do that :). I deleted the lab, but good practice for me to set it up again.

    3. thanks Jon for Merry Chrismas
      Happy new year now ;)
      I made this simulation

      but i have a problem...
      he wrote : Yet another point of interest is that to configure VXLAN related commands your CSR1000V should have the premium license

      when i do :
      Router#show platform hardware throughput level
      The current throughput level is 100 kb/s
      Router#show license detail
      % Error: No licenses found

      do you think i can't test vxlan with evaluation csr1000V ?

    4. Evaluation lic should be just fine. I honestly don't recall even enabling it lol.

  3. I Jon I'm using csr1000v-packages-universalk9.03.11.00.S.154-1.S-std in GNS3/Vbox but the vxlan commands aren't supported. Is there anything that has to be enabled first before starting the vxlan config? Thanks

    1. I don't believe VxLAN is supported until 3.12s. Looks like you just need a newer image, try going with Denali 16.3.1a or 3.16.4b.

  4. Thanks for replying. Do you happen to have any of those images? Those images aren't under any of the contracts associated with my CCO.

  5. Anyone get VXLAN dot1q to work in GNS3 with the CSR1KV? I can do untagged traffic just fine.

  6. Any thoughts on a lab using BGP EVPN?

    1. I had really good luck with BGP signaled VPLS, and there's so many commonalities between VXLAN and VPLS, so it's definitely crossed my mind. However, I've been so incredibly focused on Security these days I haven't had the chance to sit down and work it all out... yet.
