MAC Register Mode in Network Control Policy

Hi all,


As we know there are two options we could choose for mac register mode, which are only native vlan and all host vlans.

For my understanding, if we are running a hypervisor on the blade and want that specific vnic handle all the mac addresses of the guest VMs, we should choose all host vlans , right ?

So in which scenario , we would need to choose only native vlan ?? For bare metal but not hypervisor?


Thanks a lot!




  • The VMs will have their own mac addresses which is allowed by the mac forge... The vNIC mac address will be for the hypervisor...

    I think the mac register mode will affect only the vNIC from the hypervisor which probably wont use all vlans... I guess that is why they changed to native vlan mode to be the default on 2.0 release...
