Partitioning High Bandwidth Ports

The 40G ports on X670-G2 and X770 switches can be partitioned into 4x10G and 1x40G modes.

To partition the ports, enter the following command:

configure ports [port_list | all] partition [4x10G | 1x40G | 1x100G | 10x10G ]

After you make a configuration change, you must do one of the following to apply the change:

  • For X670-G2 and X770 switches you can reboot the switch.


    Because of the nature of these ports at the physical layer level, the 10G side may show a remote or local linkup. A configuration change is not applied until the affected slot is disabled and enabled or the switch is rebooted.
