This command enables the Node Alias feature on specified ports. Node Alias discovers information about the end systems on a per-port basis. Information from packets from end systems, such as VLANID, source MAC address, source IP address, protocol, etc. are captured in a database that can be queried.
|nodealias||Node Alias feature that maps source IP address, MAC address, host name, and protocol on a per port basis.|
|ports||Designates that Node Alias should be enabled on specified ports.|
|port_list||Specifies on which ports to have Node Alias enabled. Designated as a port list separated by comma (,) or dash (-).|
|all||Specifies that all ports have Node Alias enabled.|
Node Alias is disabled by default on all ports.
If the port is part of a LAG, Node Alias should be enabled separately on each LAG port.
The following example enables Node Alias on all ports:
enable nodealias ports all
