configure cfm domain domain_name md-level level

Syntax Description

Specifies the new MD level you are assigning to this domain. Enter a value between 0 and 7.



Usage Guidelines

You can have up to 8 domains on a switch, and each one must have a unique MD level. Thus, a given MD level exists only once one a switch.

The IEEE standard 801.2ag specifies different levels for different network users, as follows:
  • 5 to 7 for end users

  • 3 and 4 for Internet service providers (ISPs)

  • 0 to 2 for operators (entities carrying the information for the ISPs)


The following command changes the MD level of a previously created domain extreme to 2:

configure cfm domain extreme md-level 2


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.4.
