Usage Guidelines

Configure loopback port before enabling hardware-assisted ELRP. Note that hardware-assisted ELRP is not available on the ExtremeSwitching X435 series switches.

The ELRP client must be enabled globally in order for it to work on any VLANs.

The ELRP client can be disabled globally so that none of the ELRP VLAN configurations take effect. Use the disable elrp-client command to globally disable the ELRP client.

The ExtremeXOS does not support ELRP and Network Login on the same port.
