system-ip

system system-ip—Configure a system IP address for a Viptela device.

The system IP address is a persistent IP address that identifies the Viptela device. It is similar to a router ID on a regular router, which is the address used to identify the router from which packets originated. The system IP address is used internally as the device's loopback address in the transport VPN (VPN 0). (Note that this is not the same as a loopback address that you configure for an interface.)

On a vEdge router, the system IP address is used as the router ID for BGP or OSPF. If you configure a router ID for either of these protocols and it is different from the system IP address, the router ID takes precedence.

Options

System IP Address
ip-address
System IP address. Specify it as an IPv4 address in decimal four-part dotted notation. Specify just the address; the prefix length (/32) is implicit.
The system IP address can be any IPv4 address except for 0.0.0.0/8, 127.0.0.0/8, and 224.0.0.0/4, and 240.0.0.0/4 and later. Each device in the overlay network must have a unique system IP address. You cannot use this same address for another interface in VPN 0.

Example

Configure the system IP address and verify its configuration:

vEdge# show running-config system 
system
 host-name         vm1
 system-ip         172.16.255.11 
 domain-id         1
 site-id           100
...

vEdge# show interface vpn 0 | tab
