Creating VLAN Pools and Layer 2 Bridge Domains in Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure

Are you familiar with Cisco UCS and creating service profiles? Well, Cisco ACI is similar in that we can create a bunch of pools for later use within an Application Network Profile.

In this article I’ll be describing how to create a VLAN pool for physical connections (perhaps layer 2 connections) to a physical network switch outside of the ACI fabric, such as a Nexus 5000 series switch. I’ll then show how to create a layer 2 bridge domain which can be extended outside the fabric. Please also see the video at the end of this article for further clarification.
