I have question related to ingress nickname usage when multiple
nicknames are supported. As per RFC 6325 "section 3.7.2 Ingress RBridge
Nickname" an RBridge should use the same nickname in the ingress field
whenever it encapsulates a frame with any particular Inner.MacSA and
Inner.VLAN value when multiple nicknames are supported.
Let us say if we have 8 nicknames(n1,n2... n8) supported on a RBridge as
per my understanding of the above statement we could use nickname n1 for
all traffic ingressing from VLAN ID 1 to VLAN ID 512 and n2 for all traffic
ingressing from VLAN ID 513 to VLAN ID 1024 and so on and so forth.
Let me know if there any other draft inprogress or any part of the RFC that
mentions a different approach to set the ingress nickname when
encapsulating traffic on RBridge that supports multiple nicknames.
