configure ports

configure ports {group} port_group [[ add | delete ] port_list ]


Creates or deletes a generic port-group name that can be associated with a list of ports.

Syntax Description

group Named list of ports.
port_group Port group name.
add Add ports to port group.

port_list Specifies a port list.



Usage Guidelines

Use this command to add or delete a generic port-group name to a list of ports.


Because port-groups may be configured for multiple applications, no check is done other than that the values entered are ports. Individual applications handle illegal actions on ports as necessary. QoS commands that use port groups are updated automatically if the ports group is removed or if ports are added or removed from the group.


configure ports group testGroup add 1-5
configure ports testGroup delete 3
