enable l2vpn service

enable l2vpn [vpls [vpls_name | all] | vpws [vpws_name | all]] service


Enables the configured services for the specified VPLS or VPWS.

Syntax Description

vpls_name Identifies the VPLS within the switch (character string).
vpws_name Identifies the VPWS within the switch (character string).
all Specifies all VPLS or VPWS instances.



Usage Guidelines

When services are disabled, the VPLS or VPWS is withdrawn from all peer sessions. The keyword all enables services for all VPLS or VPWS instances.

The l2vpn keyword was introduced in ExtremeXOS Release 12.4 and is required when enabling services for a VPWS instance. For backward compatibility, the l2vpn keyword is optional when enabling services for a VPLS instance. However, this keyword will be required in a future release, so we recommend that you use this keyword for new configurations and scripts.


The following command enables the configured VPLS services for the specified VPLS instance:

enable l2vpn vpls myvpls service


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.6.

The l2vpn and vpws keywords were first available in ExtremeXOS 12.4.

Platform Availability

This command is available only on the platforms that support MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) as described in the ExtremeXOS 22.2 Feature License Requirements document.
