    EVPN/VXLAN between nodes on different public networks

    Hi, We're trying to create a cluster of Proxmox nodes directly connected to Internet (public IP, inexpensive servers provided by OVH). No LAN. We have 2 nodes atm, one in France (n1) and one in Germany (n2). We're inexperienced with SDN. Our objectives are : - put all VMs on the same VNet /...

    Hello, I've been playing with EVPN SDN on Proxmox VE 8.1.4 and I love it so far, but there are a few things that got me scratching my head. I apologize in advance if this topic has already been discussed, but the forum is just too huge to comb it all. Anway, I got a 2 node cluster and I've...

    Integrating Proxmox SDN with existing SDN network

    I've been trying to integrate the Proxmox SDN into an existing vxlan network using IS-IS. This way we'll be able to use the different vnets across multiple clusters as well as bind that to a vlan to attach legacy devices. Our lab setup is using a route-reflector on a spine switch and 2 leaf...

    [SOLVED] EVPN - traffic not passing

    Has anyone had an issue with EVPNs not passing traffic? I created a VNET that is meant to be PtP. I configured an IP address on the associated VM internet (within the same /31) and traffic fails in both directions. ARP isn't being learned. However a 'show interface' within vtysh on both...

    Using the Proxmox SDN to manage host connectivity with BGP

    Hello, We're currently trying out using the Proxmox SDN to manage not only guests (using the EVPN controller), but also host connectivity using BGP to experiment with interface redundancy using L3 protocols. It's a bit spotty of course since it obviously wasn't planned for that, but I wanted to...

    EVPN SDN not working across multiple nodes

    I'm trying to setup an EVPN based SDN across 2 proxmox nodes. I have 2 nodes with EVPN setup (and they have peered and are exchanging prefixes). These nodes also peer over standard BGP using the BGP controller to my switch, which is receiving the subnets. My switch is configured for ECMP, and I...

    Greetings, I have set up a test environment for BGP EVPN SDN as follows: * 3 hypervisor hosts running pve-manager/7.2-7/d0dd0e85. * Each hypervisor has a public IP and is set up as an exit node with SNAT. * Each hypervisor has a private IP that is used to create the BGP EVPN peering. The...

    [SOLVED] SDN with EVPN Controller

    Hello, I have been exploring SDN and wanted to try it on Proxmox. Right now, I have an experimental cluster with two nodes. The first thing I noticed is that there aren't the well-known SDN controllers like OpenDaylight, Ryu, and the others. And I'm not familiar with EVPN or BGP as...

    [SOLVED] SDN: VXLAN with BGP EVPN. Cannot add VLAN tag to guest interface

    Hi, I am testing VXLAN with BGP EVPN with Proxmox 7.1 SDN. BGP and EVPN seem to be working fine, and I can route traffic on VM interfaces that do not specify a VLAN tag. However, when I try to set a VLAN tag on a guest VM NIC which is using a VXLAN VNET, I get the following error: no physical...
