Syntax Description

vlan_name Specifies the name of the member VLAN to which you want to add the loopback port.
port Specifies the port that serves as the loopback port.



Usage Guidelines

If two or more member VLANs have overlapping ports (where the same ports are assigned to both VLANs), each of the member VLANs with overlapping ports must have a dedicated loopback port.

The loopback port can be added to the member VLAN when the member VLAN is created, or you can use this command to add the loopback port at a later time.


The following example adds port 2:1 as a loopback port for the member VLAN leafvlan:

configure leafvlan vlan-translation add loopback-port 2:1


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.

Platform Availability

This command is available on all platforms that support the VLAN Translation feature. For features and the platforms that support them, see the ExtremeXOS and Switch Engine 31.7 Feature License Requirements document.
