configure eaps add protected vlan

configure eaps name add protected {vlan} vlan_name


Adds the specified protected VLAN to the specified EAPS domain.

Syntax Description

name Specifies the name of an EAPS domain.
vlan_name Specifies the name of the protected VLAN.



Usage Guidelines

You must configure one or more protected VLANs for each EAPS domain. The protected VLANs are the data-carrying VLANs.

A protected VLAN can be added to one or more EAPS domains.

When you configure a protected VLAN, the ring ports of the protected VLAN must be tagged (except in the case of the default VLAN). As long as the ring is complete, the master node blocks the protected VLANs on its secondary port.

The VLAN must already exist before you can add it as a protected VLAN. If you attempt to add a VLAN that does not exist, the switch displays a message similar to the following:

* Switch.5 # configure eaps megtest add protected foo^%% Invalid input detected at '^' marker. 

To create the VLAN, use the create vlan command.


The following command adds the protected VLAN orchid to the EAPS domain eaps_1:

configure eaps eaps_1 add protected vlan orchid


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
