Enables the specified VPLS or VPWS.
|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 or VPWS instances are enabled.
When enabled, VPLS or VPWS attempts to establish sessions between all configured peers. Services must be configured and enabled for sessions to be established successfully.
The l2vpn keyword is introduced in ExtremeXOS Release 12.4 and is required when enabling a VPWS. For backward compatibility, the l2vpn keyword is optional when enabling 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 enables the VPLS instance myvpls:
enable vpls myvpls
The following command enables the VPWS instance myvpws:
enable l2vpn vpws myvpws
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.6.
The l2vpn and vpws keywords were first available in ExtremeXOS 12.4.
This command is available only on the platforms that support MPLS as described in the Switch Engine 32.2 Feature License Requirements document.
