one question about VDX mac address table.
VDX switch run at Fabric cluster mode.
two spine 8770, and more leaf of 6740 in one fabric cluster. Each 6740 connect to both 8770.
The l3 Vlan VRRP-E configured on two spine 8770.
In leaf 6740 when show mac table, look like below. the some ports is XX VR(vrrp id)/X/X.
How to check VDX fabric encapsulate the mac address to which spine?
Is there any other command can see detial the VDX switch will add TRILL Header of which spine RBridge ID or will load share to two spine?
Each spine configured VRRP-E VIP address, and the VIP address is same. The show mac table is not clear will forward which spine.
How the VDX switch handle these mac address and encapsulate TRILL Header for data packet destinated to vlan VIP GW?
sh mac | i VR
VlanId Mac-address Type State Ports
66 02e0.52e8.c742 System Remote XX VR66/X/X
50 02e0.528a.5732 System Remote XX VR50/X/X
229 02e0.52d2.0ae5 System Remote XX VR229/X/X

No, the leaf will not send it to both 8770. It will only send the packet to the active VRRP master.
Yes, leaf sees VR229 as a virtual RBID which is own by the active VRRP master. Therefore, it knows which RBID to send the packet.
This mapping is internal and I don't have the commands to print the internal mapping.
