This is for me a new concept I don’t have any see anymore. I only imagine inter-vlan routing by L3 switch or router on a stick.
But you can make this kind of architecture :
In this case : as the request is originated from S1 (who has RA as gateway) to S2.
- RA acts as router : MAC src = RA ; MAC dsst = S2 in vlan 2
- S2 sends to his gateway which this time is RB
- RB sends packet tthrough SB which has not MAC address of S1 in his CAM for vlan 1
- So it acts in normal way : IT FLOODS !
You can have other ways where you can see unicast flooding :
- Spanning-Tree TCN changes
- Forwarding CAM table overflow
You can protect your LAN by using ‘Unicast Flooding protection’
From 12.1(14)E version it is implemented : ‘unicast flood protection‘
To check : ‘sh mac-address-table unicast-flood‘.
