Hi, In your VTN,Every VTN in one controller can use all the physical switches;but I want to do is to use only part of them; such as: vtn1 can only run part of switches;vtn 2 can only use other switches;every VTN can only run their own switches topology belong to the all physical switches; I want to do is use one controller to controll three virtual networks,each can only run their own topology ,not the all physical switches; Question:How to make the data of each virtual network can only use part of physical network's switches, can I own definition? Or you can say , when create a VTN, Can you define their own virtual network topology to ensure topology isolated ? VTN 's Path Policy function just can deside a approach, cannot decide virtual network topology which is part of a physical switches.

Network Isolation is achieved by creating vbridges in a VTN. vBridge is a L2 broadcast domain. VLAN is used for network isolation across multiple vBridges in a VTN. Path policy function in VTN decides the network path taken by the packets based on the path policy applied to the VTN.

Thanks, Bala
