  • Operational version—Extended
  • Priority—0
  • 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. interface—none

Usage Guidelines

The type keyword specifies the type of ESRP domain when a new ESRP domain is created. The only types supported are vpls-redundancy and standard. Not specifying the optional ESRP domain type results in the creation of an ESRP domain of type standard. The standard ESRP domain is equivalent to the legacy ESRP domain type that was implicitly created. The vpls-redundancy domain type is only specified when redundant access to an MPLS VPLS network is desired.

An ESRP domain name must begin with an alphabetical character and may contain alphanumeric characters and underscores ( _ ), but it cannot contain spaces. The maximum allowed length for a name is 32 characters. For ESRP domain name guidelines and a list of reserved names, see Object Names in the ExtremeXOS 31.7 User Guide .

Each ESRP domain name must be unique and cannot duplicate any other named ESRP domains on the switch. If you are uncertain about the ESRP names on the switch, use the show esrp command to view the ESRP domain names.

You can create a maximum of 128 ESRP domains.

Configuring ESRP-Aware Switches

For an Extreme Networks switch to be ESRP-aware, you must create an ESRP domain on the aware switch, add a master VLAN to that ESRP domain, add a member VLAN to that ESRP domain if configured, and configure a domain ID if necessary.
