enable loopback-mode vlan
Allows a VLAN to be placed in the UP state without an external active port. This allows (disallows) the VLANs routing interface to become active.
|vlan_name||Specifies a VLAN name.|
|vlan_list||Specifies a VLAN list of IDs.|
Use this command to specify a stable interface as a source interface for routing protocols. This decreases the possibility of route flapping, which can disrupt connectivity.
The following example allows the VLAN "accounting" to be placed in the UP state without an external active port:
enable loopback-mode vlan accounting
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
The vlan_list option was added in ExtremeXOS 16.1.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
