create private-vlan

create private-vlan name {vr vr_name}


Creates a PVLAN framework with the specified name.

Syntax Description

name Specifies a name for the new PVLAN.
vr_name Specifies the VR in which the PVLAN is created.



Usage Guidelines

The PVLAN is a framework that links network and subscriber VLANs; it is not an actual VLAN.

A private VLAN name must begin with an alphabetical character and may contain alphanumeric characters and underscores ( _ ), but it cannot contain spaces. The maximum allowed length for a name is 32 characters. For private VLAN naming guidelines and a list of reserved names, see Object Names in the ExtremeXOS 32.2 User Guide .

If no VR is specified, the PVLAN is created in the default VR context.


The following example creates a PVLAN named "companyx":

create private-vlan companyx


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.

Platform Availability

This command is available on all platforms that support the Private VLAN feature. For features and the platforms that support them, see the ExtremeXOS 32.2 Feature License Requirements document.
