JunOS error: In routing-instance default-switch interface ae3.0 has vlan and vxlan mixed which is not supported

Posted by

You might see this error when using VXLAN on Juniper kit after you set an interface to be a member of “all” VLANs. This is because “all” includes VLAN 1. Per this documentation, you can’t actually use VLAN 1 with VXLAN but you must map it to a VNI. For example:

/* You need to map VLAN 1 to a VNI else you can't use `vlan members all` on interfaces - DO NOT USE THIS VLAN */
VLAN001 {
    vlan-id 1;
    vxlan {
        vni 1;

Set syntax is:

set vlans VLAN001 vlan-id 1 vxlan vni 1


  1. Hi Phil,

    Thank you for good information. I tried it but the same error was displayed, I found EVPN-VXLAN with MC-LAG is not supported. I’ll look it up about EVPN multihoming active-active mode.

    Multichassis link aggregation groups (MC-LAGs) are not supported with VXLAN.
    NOTE In an EVPN-VXLAN environment, EVPN multihoming active-active mode is used instead of MC-LAG for redundant connectivity between hosts and leaf devices.

    1. Right – EVPN multihoming is the correct way to do HA in an EVPN+VXLAN setup. The config for it is pretty simple, it’s just a single port LACP LAG with a common ESI ID between the two switches
