  • Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC)

Known Affected Releases

1.1(3f) 1.2(1k)

Description (partial)

Symptom:
When Cisco ACI deploys an EPG as a portgroup in VMWare VMM Integration, it names it in the following manner:

tenant|application profile|EPG

The pipe '|' character can cause problems for third party tools that are unable to properly parse the portgroup name.

Cisco ACI does not currently allow this naming convention to be modified.

Conditions:
A tool or language is used to read the name of a portgroup deployed by Cisco ACI but fails due to the pipe '|' character.
