configure vm-tracking vpp add

configure vm-tracking vpp vpp_name add [ingress | egress] [policy policy_name | dynamic-rule rule_name] {policy-order policy_order}


Configures an LVPP to use the specified policy or ACL rule.

Syntax Description


Specifies the name of an existing LVPP.


Specifies whether the LVPP should start using the specified policy or rule.


Specifies that the policy mapped to the LVPP is for ingress traffic.


Specifies that the policy mapped to the LVPP is for egress traffic.


Specifies a policy to add to or delete from the LVPP.


Specifies a dynamic ACL rule to add to or delete from the LVPP.



Usage Guidelines

Multiple ACL or policy files can be mapped to each LVPP. A maximum of 8 ingress and 4 egress ACL or policies are available to be mapped to each LVPP. If the policy file or dynamic rule specified in this command fails to bind, then the CLI command is rejected.

Before you can configure an LVPP, you must first create it with the create vm-tracking vpp command.


The following command configures LVPP vpp1 to use the dynamic ACL rule named rule1 for ingress traffic:

# configure vm-tracking vpp vpp1 add ingress dynamic-rule rule1


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.5.

The ingress and egress keywords were added in ExtremeXOS 12.6.
