configure openflow vlan mode

configure openflow {vlan} vlan_name mode [standard | hybrid]


Configures the OpenFlow mode of the VLAN (Virtual LAN).

Syntax Description

vlan_name The name of the VLAN.
standard OpenFlow-based learning and forwarding occur on the VLAN.
hybrid Normal Ethernet learning and forwarding occur on the VLAN.


By default, standard mode is configured.

Usage Guidelines

  • Hybrid mode—The VLAN performs traditional switch-based L2 learning and forwarding, though the ports are reported to the controller as OpenFlow ports.
  • Standard mode—The ports in the VLAN behave strictly according to the OpenFlow standard.


The following example configures the hybrid mode for VLAN "core."

configure openflow vlan "core" mode hybrid
