Routed VLAN interfaces

A routed VLAN interface (RVI) is a physical port or trunk interface that supports layer-3 routing protocols. When the physical port or trunk is administratively down, the RVI for that physical port or trunk goes down as well. All RVIs use the same VLAN, 4095.

RVIs support ECMP, VRF, multiple IP addresses, IPv4 addresses, IPv6 addresses, BFD, VRRP, DHCP server, DHCP relay, RIP, OSPF, ISIS, BGP, and PIM.

Layer-2 protocols and most switch interface features are disabled on RVIs. When RVI is enabled, the following features are not available:

  • 802.1X port mode

  • 802.1X MAC-based security mode

  • User-based (802.1X) VLAN assignment

  • 802.1X enhancements, including MAB

  • MAB reauthentication

  • open-auth mode

  • Support of the RADIUS accounting server

  • Support of RADIUS CoA and disconnect messages

  • EAP pass-through

  • Network device detection

  • DHCP snooping

  • DHCP blocking

  • Dynamic ARP inspection

  • Access VLANs

  • VLAN tag by ACL

  • IGMP snooping

  • IGMP proxy

  • IGMP querier

  • Per-port maximum for learned MACs

  • MAC learning limit

  • Learning limit violation log

  • set mac-violation-timer

  • Sticky MAC

  • Total MAC entries

  • MSTP

  • STP root guard

  • STP BPDU guard

  • 'forced-untagged' or 'force-tagged' setting on switch interfaces

  • Private VLANs

  • Multi-stage load balancing

  • MAC/IP/protocol-based VLAN assignment

  • Virtual wire

  • Loop guard

  • VLAN stacking (QnQ)

  • VLAN mapping

  • MCLAG

  • STP support in MCLAGs

  • IGMP snooping support in MCLAG

  • Cut-through switching

  • Edge port

  • Host quarantine on switch port

Configuring an RVI

tooltip icon When you configure a trunk interface as an RVI, you must confgure a static MAC address to avoida disruption of adjacency when adding or removing a group of ports.
Using the CLI:

Create a system interface. Set the IP address and netmask, set the interface type to physical, and then assign the layer-2 interface.

config system interface

edit <new_interface_name>

set ip <IP_address_and_netmask>

set type physical

set l2-interface <existing_interface_name>

next

end

For example:

config system interface

edit RVInew

set ip 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0

set allowaccess ping

set type physical

set l2-interface port2

next

end

Viewing the RVIs

Use the following command to list which ports and trunks are RVIs:

diagnose ip router fwd l3-rvi-info

Use the following command to list MAC addresses, priorities, source ports, and flags for RVIs:

diagnose hardware switchinfo l2-station-table
