unconfigure eaps port

unconfigure eaps eapsDomain [primary | secondary] port


Sets the specified port‘s internal configuration state to INVALID.

Syntax Description

eapsDomain Specifies the name of an EAPS (Extreme Automatic Protection Switching) domain.
primary Specifies that the primary port should be unconfigured.
secondary Specifies that the secondary port should be unconfigured.



Usage Guidelines

Unconfiguring an EAPS port sets its internal configuration state to INVALID, which causes the port to appear in the Idle state with a port status of Unknown when you use the show eaps detail command to display the status information about the port.

To prevent loops in the network, the switch displays by default a warning message and prompts you to unconfigure the specified EAPS primary or secondary ring port. When prompted, do one of the following:
  • Enter y to unconfigure the specified port.

  • Enter n or press [Return] to cancel this action.

If you have considerable knowledge and experience with EAPS, you might find the EAPS loop protection warning messages unnecessary. For more information, see the configure eaps config-warnings off.


The following command unconfigures this node‘s EAPS primary ring port on the domain eaps_1:

unconfigureeapseaps_1primary port

The switch displays the following warning message and prompts you to confirm this action:

WARNING: Unconfiguring the Primary port from the EAPS domain could cause a loop in the network! Are you sure you want to unconfigure the Primary EAPS Port? (y/n)

Enter y to continue and unconfigure the EAPS primary ring port. Enter n to cancel this action.

The switch displays a similar warning message if you unconfigure the secondary EAPS port.


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.

The interactive messages were added in ExtremeXOS 11.4.
