unconfigure vman ethertype

unconfigure vman ethertype {secondary}


Restores the default primary VMAN ethertype value of 0x88A8 or deletes the secondary ethertype value.

Syntax Description

secondary Deletes the secondary ethertype value.


If the secondary option is not specified, it restores the default primary VMAN ethertype value of 0x88a8.

Usage Guidelines

When you enter this command without the secondary option, the primary VMAN ethertype returns to the default value of 0x88A8. If you specify the secondary option, the secondary VMAN ethertype value is deleted (no value is assigned).



Before unconfiguring the secondary VMAN ethertype, any secondary VMAN port must be changed to the primary VMAN ethertype; otherwise the command fails.


The following example restores the primary VMAN ethertype to the default value:

unconfigure vman ethertype

The following example deletes the secondary VMAN ethertype:

unconfigure vman ethertype secondary
