By default, on standalone switches, port notation is used.
By default, on stacks/Extended Edge Switching, slot:port notation is used.
You can configure a standalone system as a slotted system with this command, which allows for commands which had ‘slot‘ arguments to be visible and take in a valid slot number of ‘1‘, along with any port arguments specified in ‘slot‘:‘port‘ notation. In turn, any command output would specify ‘slot‘ information and ports displayed in ‘slot‘:‘port‘ or slot/port notation.
This command requires a configuration save and reboot to take effect.
To view the port notation status, use the show management command.
The following example changes a standalone switch to have slot:port notation:
# configure system ports notation slot:port This command will take effect after the next reboot.
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 30.2.
The slot/port keyword was added in ExtremeXOS 31.4.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching X435, X440-G2, X450-G2, X460-G2, X465, X590, X620, and X695 series switches.
