[c-nsp] LAM / Mobile IP in modern times

Had the idea of testing LAM to support an application without resorting to
inter-datacenter bridging(*) (Vmotion in this case) ,

Astonished to find the documentation old and out of date, coupled with a
lack of vrf support (no "redistribute mobile" in the VRF BGP context) ,

Can't seem to find anything suggesting a feature which could quite easily be
a superb alternative to bridging is even remotely vrf aware.

Any advice/pointers appreciated.


This is a terrible thing IMHO as you are still left to pick up the pieces as
to who owns the subnet for routing purposes, I personally think LAM and
sufficiently convergence tuned network should be almost if not as good.
