Creating and Configuring the EAPS Shared Ports

Create the EAPS (Extreme Automatic Protection Switching) shared ports, which are used to connect a common-link between the aggregate switches.
On the first switch, define the shared port mode as partner, and define the link ID. Repeat this step on the other aggregate switch, but configure the shared port mode as controller. The link ID matches the value configured for the partner.
The following shows an example configuration for the partner:
* AGG-SWITCH#2.37 # create eaps shared-port 2:1
* AGG-SWITCH#2.38 # configure eaps shared-port 2:1 mode partner
* AGG-SWITCH#2.39 # configure eaps shared-port 2:1 link-id 21
