configure vpex ports

configure vpex ports port_list slot slot_num


Allows you to associate a bridge port extender (BPE) to a slot.

Syntax Description

vpex Specifies Virtual Port Extender (VPEX).
ports Specifies the switch ports attached to the BPE.
port_list Specifies the switch ports attached to the BPE. Must be in the format slot:port. Only a single port can be configured at a time.
Note: If the switch port is a LAG, the port specified must be the master port.
slot Specifies VPEX BPE slot assignment.
slot_num Specifies VPEX BPE slot assignment. Value must be between 100–162.



Usage Guidelines

You must enable VPEX mode (enable vpex) before using this command.

The behavior of this command is similar to assigning slots within a chassis. After assigning a slot number to the port extender, you can make port-level configuration choices with the familiar slot:port notation in other commands involving the port extender's ports (for example, configure vlan v1 add port 100:1).

This command causes jumbo frames to be enabled on the specified ports.


The following example assigns a BPE attached to switch port 1:23 to slot 100:

# configure vpex ports 1:23 slot 100


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 22.5.
