Trident2 does not support VXLAN routing without special configuration tricks. Trident2+ would be required for that capability.

The Dell S4100-ON is listed in the CumulusNetworks compatibility list as using the Maverick ASIC. And the data sheet for the Dell says it has hardware support for both L2 and L3 VXLAN.
