Using VLANs to add more accelerated Inter-VDOM links
You can add VLAN interfaces to the accelerated inter-VDOM links to create inter-VDOM links between more VDOMs. For the links to work, the VLAN interfaces must be added to the same inter-VDOM link, must be on the same subnet, and must have the same VLAN ID.
For example, to accelerate inter-VDOM link traffic between VDOMs named Marketing and Engineering using VLANs with VLAN ID 100 go to System > Network > Interfaces and select Create New to create the VLAN interface associated with the Marketing VDOM:
VLAN ID 100
Virtual Domain Marketing
IP/Network Mask 172.20.120.12/24
Create the inter-VDOM link associated with Engineering VDOM:
VLAN ID 100
Virtual Domain Engineering
IP/Network Mask 172.20.120.22/24
Or do the same from the CLI:
config system interface edit Marketing-link
set vdom Marketing
set ip 172.20.120.12/24 set interface npu0-vlink0 set vlanid 100
edit Engineering-link set vdom Engineering
set ip 172.20.120.22/24 set interface npu0-vlink1 set vlanid 100
