configure elrp-client disable ports

configure elrp-client disable-ports [exclude | include] [ ports | eaps-ring-ports]

Description

Creates an ELRP exclude port list.

Syntax Description

exclude Specifies that selected ports are to be excluded from ELRP disabling.
include Specifies that selected ports are to be included in ELRP disabling.
ports Specifies one or more ports to be excluded or included.
eaps-ring-ports Specifies whether EAPS ring ports are to be excluded or included.

Default

All ports, together with EAPS ring ports, are included by default; that is, they will be disabled if a loop is detected on that port.

Usage Guidelines

Use this command to specify ports or EAPS ring ports that are to be part of an ELRP exclude port list. Use the exclude option to add ports to the exclude port list. Use the include option to remove them from the list.

When ELRP detects a loop and has been configured to automatically disable the port where a looped ELRP PDU is received and an exclude port list has been configured, it will check to determine if that port is on the exclude port list. If that port is on the list, ELRP will not disable it; if it is not on the list, it will be disabled.

Any port on the switch can be added to or removed from the list. EAPS ring ports can be part of the list.

To display the ports that are include in the exclude port list, use the show elrp disabled-ports command.

To remove the exclude port list, use the unconfigure elrp-client disable ports command.

Example

The following example adds port 2:1 to an ELRP exclude port list:

configure elrp-client disable-ports exclude 2:1,2:3
