does anyone know, how the controller treat the end systems, when using a topology group in the VNS?
For example if we have a group with 3 VLANs, will he do round robin?
Haven't found anything in the documentation.

Hi Chacko

If you are referring to the IdentiFi product these are the algorithms you can select in the global vns section:

• MAC-Based: This algorithm always assigns a client to the same topology within the topology group.
• Round Robin: The list is considered ordered; start at the top of the list. The next assignment is the
next topology on the list; wrap around at the bottom.
• Random Selected: Random number selected from a uniform distribution mod the number of
topologies in the topology group.
• Least Used: Assign a topology in the topology group with the least number of stations assigned to it
at the moment of assignment.

Hi Chacko

Please note that the controller provides minimum support to use only tunneled topology groups (B@AC, routed).
