VC FlexFabrix/Flex-10 and 802.1QinQ

Juho had a protocol question:

 

**************

 

Does anyone have experience with 802.1QinQ  in BladeSystem environment with VirtualConnect? How VirtualConnect reacts when it receives QinQ packets? I’m aware that VC uses QinQ when traffic passes VirtualConnect but can we read C-TAG and control traffic based on that?

From Vincent:

 

************

 

Not really. When VC receives a packet it only looks at the first (outermost) VLAN tag. The packet may well be double-tagged but VC will not consider or even look at the inner tag(s)
