enable esrp

enable esrp esrpDomain


Enables ESRP for a named domain.

Syntax Description

esrpDomain Specifies the name of an ESRP domain.



Usage Guidelines

Before you enable an ESRP domain, it must have a domain ID. The ESRP domain ID is determined from one of the following user-configured parameters:
  • ESRP domain number created with the configure esrp domain-id command

  • 802.1Q tag (VLANid) of the tagged master This command is available on the ExtremeSwitching X440-G2, X450-G2, X460-G2, X465, X590, X620, X670-G2, X690, X695, X870, 5320, 5420, 5520 series switches.

If you do not have a domain ID, you cannot enable ESRP on that domain. A message similar to the following appears:

ERROR: Cannot enable ESRP Domain "esrp1" ; No domain id configured!

If you add an untagged master VLAN to the ESRP domain, make sure to create an ESRP domain ID with the configure esrp domain-id command before you attempt to enable the domain.


The following command enables ESRP for the domain esrp1:

enable esrp esrp1


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
