The following question was asked by Ben Kaduk during IESG review of the
following document: 

 

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-i2rs-yang-l2-network-topology/

 

     grouping l2-node-attributes {

         [...]

         leaf sys-mac-address {

           type yang:mac-address;

           description

             "System MAC address.";

         }

 

If there are more than 1 system mac address in a switch, how would this
model handle it. 

 

My understanding is that most switches have 1 system mac address for network
management.  Therefore, the L2 topology model supports one. 

 

Question for Yang Doctors: 

 

1) Is this the normal assumption for yang models? 

2) If not, what is the normal assumption on system mac addresses? 

 

3) Am I correct that switches with more than 1 system MAC will augment their
basic yang model with the second system MAC Address. 

 

Thank you, Susan Hares
