Interface Policy Groups
Now that the AEPs, Domains and VLAN Pools are assigned, we focus on Interface Policy Groups. With Interface Policy Groups we have access ports, direct port channels and virtual port-channels. VPCs and DPCs are similar but access ports are designed differently.
Since access port interface policy groups are commonly re-used across various similar endpoints, generic access port policy groups are created mainly differing by type and speed. As an example, any Baremetal server with a non-port channel link that fits a speed profile would be assigned to the respective group.
These are preconfigured and ready for assignment in interface profiles. By using this naming convention, it can aid in troubleshooting and overall management without major effects to all endpoints. Typically, these fit into the majority of endpoint use cases.
