VRF is a technology that allows multiple instances of a routing table to co-exist within the same router. Because the routing instances are independent, the same or overlapping IP addresses can be used without conflicting with each other. Network functionality is improved because network paths can be segmented without requiring multiple routers.

VRF support

The 6200 Switch Series supports two predefined VRFs:

  • mgmt: Assigned to the management port and is used to isolate management traffic.

  • default: All other interfaces are automatically assigned to the VRF default.


User-defined VRFs are not supported on the 6200 Switch Series.
