Add VLAN-tagged interface group to Tenant/Application Profiles/Endpoint Group

Goal

This workflow adds a Virtual LAN (VLAN) tagged interface group (ifgrp) to the failover group. This workflow then add the Virtual Port Channel (VPC) bundle with VLAN encapsulation to the Tenant/Application Profiles/endpoint group (EPG).

Prerequisites

1.       You must be running ONTAP 9.0 or later.

2.       You must have added the following APIC user credentials in the Credentials window:

Input parameters

Values

Match

Exact

Type

APIC

Name/IP

IP address

User name

Domain administrator name

Password

Domain administrator password

 

3.       You must have added the APIC credentials with Client ID and Client Secret in the Data Sources window.

4.       You must know the port numbers of a leaf physically connected to the storage system.

5.       Tenant/Application Profiles/ EPG should be present in APIC.

6.       VLAN-tagged interface group should be present in the FAS system.

User Inputs

To execute this workflow, provide the required information in the following fields:

         Cluster Details

         Create VPC Bundle using FAS Vserver LIF

         APIC Details

         Add VPC Bundle to Tenant/ApplicationProfile/EPG

 

1.      Cluster Details

         Cluster* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the cluster IP address.

Note: The drop-down menu also shows the primary IP address and version associated with each cluster name.

 

 

         Node* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select a node.

 

Note: The drop-down menu also shows the model associated with each node name.

 

.

 

         Vserver* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the Vserver.

 

 

         Port* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the VLAN-tagged interface group port.

 

 

         IsCreateFoG* [Optional]: Create a failover group by selecting the check box. In this case, you must create a new failover group. This enables the following field:

 

  NewFailOverGroup* [Mandatory]: Provide the name of the new failover group.

         IsCreateFoG* [Optional]: If you do not want to create a failover group and use an existing failover group, then unselect the check box. This enables the following fields:

 

  ExistingFailOverGroup* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select an existing failover group.

  CreateVPCPortRange: Create the port range for a VPC.

 

2.      Create VPC Bundle using FAS Vserver LIF

You can select the details for creating the VPC bundle by using FAS Vserver LIF. A VPC bundle is a collection of switch ports to be aggregated as one.

 

         VserverName* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the Vserver.

 

 

         VserverLIFName: From the drop-down menu, select the Vserver LIF name.

Note: The VPC bundle name to be created is the Vserver LIF name and the switch port numbers.

 

 

 

3.      APIC Details

You can select the details for the APIC to create the VPC bundle.

         Controller* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the APIC controller IP address.

         SelectPortRange [Optional]: Select the check box to create the port range for the VPC bundle if only one physical ports is connected to the FAS storage system. For example, ports 1/11 is connected. Do not select the check box if two non-consecutive ports are connected in the FAS storage system. For example, ports 1/11 and 1/15 are connected.

 

         SwitchIDStart* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the 'Switch ID start' option.

         SwitchIDStart_fromPort* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the 'from' port from the 'Switch ID start'.

         SwitchIDStart_toPort* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the 'to' port from the 'Switch ID start'.

         SwitchIDEnd* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the 'Switch ID end' option.

         SwitchIDEnd_fromPort * [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the 'from' port from the 'Switch ID end'.

         SwitchIDEnd_toPort * [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the 'to' port from the 'Switch ID end'.

4.      Add VPC Bundle to Tenant/ApplicationProfile/EPG

 

You can select the details for adding the VPC bundle to the Tenant/Application Profiles/EPG.

 

         Tenant* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select the tenant. A tenant is a policy container that enables the domain-based admin access control.

         ApplicationProfile* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select an application profile. An application profile is a logical container used for grouping EPGs.

         EndPointGroup* [Mandatory]: From the drop-down menu, select an endpoint group. An EPG is a logical entity that contains a collection of endpoints, such as leaf or storage.

         Opmode: From the drop-down menu, select the operation mode as either immediate or OnDemand.

Result

The workflow results in adding a VLAN-tagged interface group to the Tenant/Application Profiles/EPG.

Error handling

An error message triggers if VLAN is not tagged to the interface group.
