Configure a non-NSH-aware service function of type IP

Each SFF has some number of service functions (SFs) associated with it. A service function is the service on a device that processes requests from, and sends responses to, an SFF in a service chain. You must associate a non-NSH-aware service function with an SFF.
  1. From the SFC controller menu on the left side of the screen, select
    Service Functions
    .
  2. In the upper left corner, click
    Create
    .
    The Create New Service Function screen opens.
  3. Type a unique name for the SF.
    In our sample configuration, this is
    sf1-1
    .
  4. From the
    Service Function Forwarder
    list, select an SFF.
    In our sample configuration, this is
    sff1
    .
  5. From the
    NSH Aware
    list, select
    No
    .
  6. From the
    Resource Type
    list, select
    IP
    .
  7. Type the IP address of the SF device.
  8. From the
    Ingress Interface
    and
    Egress Interface
    lists, select two interfaces.
    In our sample configuration, these are the VLANs that you created as prerequisites,
    sff-sf-vlan
    and
    sf-sff-vlan
    , respectively.
  9. Click
    Create
    .
    After you complete this step, the SFC controller propagates the SF configuration data you entered to the relevant SFF.
After completing this task, the SFC configuration contains one non-NSH-aware SF. This is the only non-NSH-aware SF required for the sample configuration.
