Guidelines and Limitations While Configuring Static ARP
The host refresh time is twice the Layer 3 aging time (2*L3 age).
You must create a vRouter interface on the switch to send ARP request. For VRF aware static ARP, a VRF subnet should be created.
Host sends the ARP reply to the vRouter interface only. In the case of VRF aware static ARP, the ARP reply is sent to subnet anycast gateway IP.
In cases where there are multiple static ARP entries within the same VLAN, use the static-arp-delete ip ip-address mac mac-address vlan/vxlancommand to delete the specific entry.
In the beginning, the Layer 3 entry should be activated with ping for the static ARP entry to be functional.
Static ARP entry can be created with VLAN or VXLAN options. You cannot have both VLAN and VXLAN at the same time while creating the static ARP entry. For VRF-aware static ARP, the static ARP entry should be created only with the VXLAN option.
When you create a static ARP entry with scope, cluster or fabric, Netvisor creates a static ARP entry configuration on one switch and enables the static flag for Layer 3 entry in the L3 table for all the other switches in the fabric or cluster.
