Azure ExpressRoute QinQ

L1 Bithead

We are moving to a new data center and i need to set up an Expressroute to Azure.  The data center provides an L2 transit.  This means i need an outer VLAN and and inner VLAN to setup the BGP connection.  has anyone connected to Azure through a data center provider that only has L2?  i can find Cisco docs for connections like this but nothing from Palo Alto. Any links would be appreciated.


Per PaloAlto Support:    Currently Palo Alto Firewall do not support terminating 802.1Q-in-Q (type 0x8100) tag packets. It can process the packets using the outer VLAN tag as a match to create sessions.
