disable sharing

disable sharing port


Disables a load-sharing group of ports, also known as a link aggregation group (LAG).

Syntax Description


Specifies the logical port of a load-sharing group or link aggregation group (LAG). Specifies a port or a combination of the slot and port number.



Usage Guidelines

When sharing is disabled, the logical port retains all configuration including VLAN membership. All other member ports are removed from all VLANs to prevent loops and their configuration is reset to default values.

Any attempt to disable sharing on ports that have MLAG configuration is denied with the following error message:

ERROR: Sharing configuration on MLAG ports cannot be modified. Use "disable mlag port <port>" to remove port from MLAG group first.


The following command disables sharing on master logical port 9 in slot 3, which contains ports 9 through 12, on a modular switch:

disable sharing 3:9
