Disables the switch from generating locally administered per-port MAC addresses.
This command has no arguments or variables.
This feature is disabled by default.
ExtremeXOS switches do not use a unique per-port MAC address when transmitting bridge protocol data units (BPDUs). As a result, switch management can become inaccessible when switch MAC addresses are learned on the wrong L2 path (corresponding to a blocking port). This command allows you to disable the switch from generating locally administered MAC addresses.
The following example disables the switch from generating locally administered MAC addresses:
disable switch locally-administered-address
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 22.3.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching X435, X440-G2, X450-G2, X460-G2, X465, X590, X620, and X695 series switches.
