Goals & Objectives
The goal of the following series of multi-site labs is to familiarize the student with the concepts of configuring an ACI fabric from scratch, deploying and configuring the MSO and adding the ACI fabrics to the MSO. Basic concepts of ACI Tenants, application profiles, EPGs and bridge domains will be presented, and the student will see how these ACI policy constructs can be managed either in ACI or using the MSO.
ACI policies will be configured on the ACI spine switches for connectivity to the ISN (Inter-Site Network), which allows the ACI fabrics to form one large fabric to be managed by the MSO. Using the MSO, students will be introduced to configuring the ACI infra policy to connect the spines and ISNs, then using the MSO to configure ACI policy using Tenants, schemas and templates.
