Q: How Do I Configure Basic TRILL Functions?

A: Figure 1 shows a data center network. It is required that an unblocked Layer network be constructed, multi-path forwarding be implemented, and each network node can implement line-speed forwarding.


In the figure, 10GE1 indicates 10GE1/0/1, 10GE2 indicates 10GE1/0/2, and 10GE3 indicates 10GE1/0/3.

Figure1 Networking for configuring basic TRILL functions

Step1: Enable TRILL on each RB, and configure their VLANs, NETs, and nicknames. Core devices have high performance. Therefore, you need to set the root priority of the core device RB4 to 65535 to ensure that RB4 becomes the multicast tree root of the TRILL network.

# Configure RB1.The configurations on other RBs are similar to that on RB1.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] sysname RB1
[*HUAWEI] commit
[~RB1] vlan 100
[*RB1-vlan100] commit
[~RB1-vlan100] quit
[~RB1] trill
[*RB1-trill] carrier-vlan 10
[*RB1-trill] ce-vlan 100
[*RB1-trill] network-entity 00.0000.0000.1111.00
[*RB1-trill] nickname 100
[*RB1-trill] commit
[~RB1-trill] quit
Step2:Configure TRILL on each interface. 
# Enable TRILL on the interface of RB1.The configurations on other RBs are similar to that on RB1.
[~RB1] interface 10ge 1/0/1
[~RB1-10GE1/0/1] undo shutdown
[~RB1-10GE1/0/1] port link-type trunk
[*RB1-10GE1/0/1] trill enable
[*RB1-10GE1/0/1] quit
[*RB1] interface 10ge 1/0/2
[*RB1-10GE1/0/2] undo shutdown
[*RB1-10GE1/0/2] port link-type trunk
[*RB1-10GE1/0/2] trill enable
[*RB1-10GE1/0/2] quit
[*RB1] interface 10ge 1/0/3
[*RB1-10GE1/0/3] undo shutdown
[*RB1-10GE1/0/3] port default vlan 100
[*RB1-10GE1/0/3] commit
[~RB1-10GE1/0/3] quit
Step3: Configure admin VLAN 
# Configure an admin VLAN on each device of the TRILL network, configure
VLANIF interfaces for the admin VLANs and configure an IP address for each
VLANIF interface. RB1 is used as an example here.
[~RB1] vlan 50
[*RB1-vlan50] quit
[*RB1] interface vlanif 50
[*RB1-Vlanif50] ip address 24
[*RB1-Vlanif50] quit
[*RB1] trill
[*RB1-trill] admin-vlan 50
[*RB1-trill] commit
[~RB1-trill] quit
