Trill works only on VDX "Routers" - and is the reason why you have VDX. So turning Trill off would not be a good suggestion .. Other Routers or Switch Routers won't have Trill.

TRILL is a integral component to the VDX products and i don't understand why it would need to be disabled. It sounds like solarwinds is generically dropping all packets with TRILL entries present which is a limitation on their end.


I would think solarwinds would put an update out to mitigate this issue.
