configure eaps config-warnings off

configure eaps config-warnings off


Disables the loop protection warning messages displayed when configuring specific EAPS (Extreme Automatic Protection Switching) parameters.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.


By default, loop protection warnings are enabled and displayed when configuring specific EAPS parameters.

Usage Guidelines

This is a global EAPS command. You configure the warning message display on a per switch basis, not per EAPS domain.

When configuring the following EAPS parameters, the switch displays loop protection warning messages:
  • Adding EAPS primary or secondary ring ports to a VLAN (Virtual LAN)

  • Deleting a protected VLAN

  • Disabling the global EAPS setting on the switch

  • Disabling an EAPS domain

  • Configuring an EAPS domain as a transit node

  • Unconfiguring EAPS primary or secondary ring ports from an EAPS domain

We recommend that you keep the loop protection warning messages enabled. If you have considerable knowledge and experience with EAPS, you might find the EAPS loop protection warning messages unnecessary. For example, if you use a script to configure your EAPS settings, disabling the warning messages allows you to configure EAPS without replying to each interactive yes/no question.

To confirm the setting on the switch, use the following command:

show eaps {eapsDomain} {detail}


The following command disables the loop protection warning messages:

configure eaps config-warnings off
