Object Description
Index The group index. This parameter is used for easy identifying the ring when user configure it.
  • Group 1 (Index 1) - It supports configuration of ring.
  • Group 2 (Index 2) - It supports configuration of ring, coupling and dual-homing.
  • Group 3 (Index 3) - It supports configuration of chain and balancing-chain.
Mode Enable Ring on the specific group.

When Group 1 or 2 is enabled, all configuration of Group 3 will be reset to default. Group 3 all configuration options will be locked.

To configure Group 3, both Group1 and 2 should be disabled first. When Group 3 is enabled, all configuration of Group1 and 2 will be reset to default. Group 1 and 2 all configuration options will be locked.

Role Configure the Ring group on this switch as specific role.
  • Group 1 - support option of ring-master and ring-slave.

    # Ring - it could be master or slave.

  • Group 2 - support configuration of the ring, coupling and dual-homing.

    # Ring - it could be master or slave.

    # Coupling - it could be primary and backup.

    # Dual-Homing

  • Group 3 - support configuration of the chain and balancing-chain.

    # Chain - it could be head, tail or member.

    # Balancing Chain - it could be central-block, terminal-1/2 or member.

Note:
  1. Group 1 must be enabled before enable Group 2 to coupling.
  2. When Group 1 or 2 is enabled, the configuration of Group 3 will be disabled.
  3. When Group 3 is enabled, the configuration of Group 1 and 2 will be disabled.
Ring Port(s) Selecting ring port(s).

Each ring port must be unique, CANNOT be configured in different groups; 2 ring ports between ring/chain CANNOT be the same.

# When role is ring/master, one ring port is forward port and another is block port. The block port is redundant port; it is blocking port in normal state.

 # When role is ring/slave, both ring ports are forward port.

# When role is coupling/primary, only need one ring port named primary port.

# When role is coupling/backup, only need one ring port named backup port. This backup port is redundant port; it is blocking port in normal state.

# When role is dual-homing, one ring port is primary port and another is backup port. This backup port is redundant port; it is blocking port in normal state.

# When role is chain/head, one ring port is member port and another is head port. Both ring ports are forwarding port in normal state.

# When role is chain/tail, one ring port is member port and another is tail port. The tail port is redundant port; it is blocking port in normal state.

# When role is chain/member, both ring ports are member port. Both ring ports are forwarding port in normal state.

 # When role is balancing-chain/central-block, one ring port is member port and another is block port. The block port is redundant port; it is blocking port in normal state.

# When role is balancing-chain/terminal-1/2, one ring port is member port and another is terminal port. Both ring ports are forwarding port in normal state.

# When role is balancing-chain/member, both ring ports are member port. Both ring ports are forwarding port in normal state.
