Syntax Description


Specifies the domain you want to associate with this MA.


IEEE 802.1ag Maintenance Association or ITU-T Y.1731 Maintenance Entity Group


Enter a virtual private network (VPN) Organizational Unique Identifier (OUI) in the format XX:XX:XX as part of the name for the MA.


Enter the 32-bit VPN index you want to append to the OUI to name the MA. The range is 0 to 4294967295.


Specifies the VLAN you want to assign to this MA. Each MA contains only one VLAN, VMAN, or BVLAN.


Specifies the VMAN you want to assign to this MA.


ITU-T Y.1731 Maintenance Entity Group.


MEG name, maximum of 12 characters with 6 bytes ITU Carrier Code and 6 bytes organization specific unique MEG ID code.



Usage Guidelines

All ports configured on the specified VLAN are now CFM ports in the specified MA. You add the MA, or association, to the domain, and the MA uses the MD level assigned to the domain. Each MA can belong to only one domain, but several MAs can belong to a given domain. The MA is unique within a given domain.


The following command creates an MA with the VPN ID of 11:22:33 50 that associates the domain spain and the VLAN accounting:

configure cfm domain spain add association vpn-id oui 11:22:33 index 50 vlan accounting
