Which two statements about attachable access entity profiles in the ACI Fabric are true? (Choose two.)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
ACI (Application Centric Infrastructure) Fabric is a software-defined networking (SDN) solution that provides centralized management of network infrastructure through a policy-based model. The attachable access entity profiles (AEPs) in the ACI Fabric are used to simplify the configuration of multiple individual policies. Here are the explanations for the given statements:
A. Enabling the infrastructure VLAN on an AEP is a mandatory requirement when this AEP is associated to any VMM domain. When configuring an AEP to be associated with a VMM (Virtual Machine Manager) domain, it is mandatory to enable the infrastructure VLAN on that AEP. The infrastructure VLAN is used to provide connectivity to the hypervisor management interfaces and control plane traffic.
B. AEP provides the association of a virtual machine management domain and the physical network infrastructure. An AEP provides the association between a VMM domain and the physical network infrastructure. It simplifies the configuration of policies for attaching a virtual machine to the physical network by providing a template for configuring the necessary policies.
C. AEPs are an optional component to ACI access port configuration that ease the burden of configuring multiple individual policies. AEPs are an optional component of the ACI access port configuration that simplify the configuration of multiple individual policies. By creating an AEP, administrators can define a set of policies that can be applied to multiple interfaces, reducing the complexity of configuring individual policies on each interface.
D. AEPs are directly bound to spine and leaf switch profiles and are then associated indirectly to interface selectors. AEPs are directly bound to spine and leaf switch profiles, which are then associated indirectly to interface selectors. This enables administrators to apply a set of policies to a group of interfaces without having to individually configure each interface.
E. The attached entity profile provides a template to deploy hypervisor policies on a large set of leaf ports. The AEP provides a template for deploying hypervisor policies on a large set of leaf ports. By defining a set of policies in an AEP, administrators can quickly and easily configure policies for attaching virtual machines to the physical network on a large number of leaf ports.
Therefore, the correct answers are B and C.
