disable l2vpn

disable l2vpn [vpls [vpls_name | all] | vpws [vpws_name | all]]


Disables the specified VPLS or VPWS.

Syntax Description

vpls_name Identifies the VPLS within the switch (character string).
vpws_name Identifies the VPWS within the switch (character string).
all Specifies all VPLS or VPWS instances.


All newly created VPLS instances are enabled.

Usage Guidelines

When a VPLS or VPWS instance is disabled, all sessions to its configured peers are terminated. Any locally attached service VLAN/VMAN is immediately isolated from other devices residing in the VPN. If this is an H-VPLS core node, then all spoke nodes connected to this peer are isolated unless redundant core access is configured.

The l2vpn keyword is introduced in ExtremeXOS Release 12.4 and is required when disabling a VPWS. For backward compatibility, the l2vpn keyword is optional when disabling a VPLS. However, this keyword will be required in a future release, so we recommend that you use this keyword for new configurations and scripts.


The following command disables the VPLS named myvpls:

disable vpls myvpls

The following command disables the VPWS named myvpws:

disable l2vpn vpws myvpws


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.6.

The l2vpn and vpws keywords were first available in ExtremeXOS 12.4.

Platform Availability

This command is available only on the platforms that support MPLS as described in the ExtremeXOS 32.2 Feature License Requirements document.
