Partitioning High Bandwidth Ports

The 40G ports on X670-G2, X870, and X770 switches can be partitioned into 4x10G and 1x40G modes. Also, the 100G ports on the X870 can be partitioned into 1x100G, 2x50G, 4x25G, 4x10G, 1x40G.

To partition the ports, enter the following command:

configure ports [port_list | all] partition [1x100G | 1x40G | 2x50G | 4x10G | 4x25G]

After you make a configuration change, you must save the configuration, and then reboot for the change to take effect:



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.
