configure cfm domain association ports end-point sender-id-ipaddress

configure cfm domain domain_name association association_name ports port_list end-point [up | down ] sender-id-ipaddress [disable | enable ip-address]


This command is used to disable or enable configuring the sender-id-ipaddress on a given MEP.

Syntax Description


Enter the domain associated with the MA you are configuring.


IEEE 802.1ag or ITU-T Y.1731 association name.


Enter the port number.


Specifies the IP address that is sent in the sender-id TLV of the CFM PDUs.



Usage Guidelines

Each MA needs at least two MEPs that can reach each other to exchange CCM messages.



Ensure that you assigned the port number correctly to the UP MEP and to the DOWN MEP, or the CCM messages go in the wrong direction.

You must create the MEP for which the configuration is being made before changing the configuration. Otherwise, the following error message is displayed:

The following port(s) <portlist> are not part of the associations VLAN.

Use the show cfm command to verify your configuration.
