What's the purpose of the VXLAN IP Address?

Rudy Baker
Hi,

Can anyone tell me what the purpose of the hostname.vxlan files
needing to have an IP address?

If I start my bridge without an IP on my vxlan interface, it doesn't
work. However, If I put an IP on the vxlan interface, bring up the
bridge and then "ifconfig vxlan1 delete" to remove the IP from the
vxlan interface, everything continues to work.

Thanks for any insight in advance, have a good weekend.
