Hi folks,

I have been using OpenvSwtich for a while and the VXLAN feature is awesome.
We are able to run OpenStack on top of it now. During deployment, I have
one question: how to set the VNI (VXLAN Network ID) of VXLAN tunnels? I
have checked the content of packets, and seems like the VNI field is all
set to zero. I believe VXLAN's VNI (up to 16M in total) is a great selling
point compared to VLAN. I have Googled around but had no luck finding any
useful document. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks!
