How is the virtual IP for an ACI VPC domain assigned?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D.
In an ACI (Application Centric Infrastructure) VPC (Virtual Port Channel) domain, two or more leaf switches are configured to act as a single logical switch by creating a VPC peer link between them. The VPC peer link provides redundancy and load balancing for the network traffic between the hosts connected to the VPC domain.
When a VPC domain is created in ACI, a virtual IP address (VIP) is automatically assigned to the domain. The VIP is used as the gateway IP address for the hosts connected to the VPC domain. The VIP ensures that traffic is routed to the appropriate VPC peer switch.
The VIP for an ACI VPC domain is assigned manually by the administrator. The VIP can be any IP address within the subnet that is used for the VPC domain. The administrator should ensure that the VIP is unique and not used by any other device on the network.
It is important to note that the VIP is not assigned using DHCP. DHCP is a protocol used for dynamically assigning IP addresses to devices on a network. In the context of ACI VPC domains, DHCP is not used to assign the VIP.
Additionally, it is not correct to say that "no virtual IP is available for VPC peers on ACI." As explained above, a virtual IP is assigned to the VPC domain and is used as the gateway IP address for the hosts connected to the domain.
In summary, the correct answer to the question is B. The virtual IP for an ACI VPC domain is assigned manually by the administrator.
