How to configure reflective relay for layer2 switching for Mellanox switch SN2700

Hi,

I was looking for information about how to configure reflective relay

for layer2 switching for Mellanox switch SN2700.

Using this feature we can enable reflective relay to turn back traffic

out of the same port it came in on. We can enable reflective relay on

a Layer 2 physical port

This is to support the VEPA feature.

To clarify, this is the feature I was looking for:

So wanted to check if you can please clarify the following:

  1. If this feature is supported in the switch SN2700 ?

  2. If not, then which switch supports this feature

  3. If it is supported, it would be great if you can share the commands to use.

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards
