VLAN ID and VLAN ID List Specification

As of ExtremeXOS 16.1, you can now refer to a VLAN by VID as an alternative. Specifying lists of VIDs is a is a useful shortcut to all users that can reduce the number of commands required to configure the switch.

For example consider a case where two ports should be added to four tagged VLANs. Normally this would require four commands:

configure vlan red add ports 2,10 tagged

configure vlan blue add ports 2,10 tagged

configure vlan green add ports 2,10 tagged

configure vlan orange add ports 2,10 tagged

Assuming the tags for the VLANs are 100, 200, 300, 400 respectively this configuration can be accomplished with a single command:

configure vlan 100,200,300,400 add ports 2, 10 tagged



Commands enhanced with VID list support operate in a “best effort” fashion. If one of the VIDs in a VID list do not exist the command is still executed for all of the VIDs in the list that do exist. No error or warning is displayed for the invalid VIDs unless all of the specified VIDs are in valid.
