CVID Translation

To support CVLANs that are identified by different CVIDs on different CEPs, some switches support a feature called CVID translation, which translates the CVID received at the VMAN ingress to a different CVID for egress from the VMAN (see the following figure).

You can use a CLI command to configure CVID translation for a single CVID or for a range of CVIDs, and you can enter multiple commands to define multiple CVIDs and ranges for translation. The commands can be applied to a single port or a list of ports, and after configuration, the configuration applied to a port is retained by that port.

Note

Note

CVID translation is available only on the platforms listed for this feature in the Feature License Requirements document.

CVID translation can reduce the number of CVIDs that can be mapped to VMANs.
