configure eaps hello-pdu-egress

configure eaps name hello-pdu-egress [primary-port | secondary-port]


Configures the port through which a master node sends EAPS (Extreme Automatic Protection Switching) hello PDUs.

Syntax Description

name Specifies the name of an EAPS domain.


Default is the primary port.

Usage Guidelines

This command is provided for special network topologies that use spatial reuse and require that all EAPS hello PDUs travel in the same direction on the ring.



We recommend the default (primary-port) configuration for this command.


The following command configures the master switch to send EAPS hello packets from the secondary port:

configure eaps "domain12" hello-pdu-egress secondary-port


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.4.2.
