Syntax Description


Specifies the domain you want to associate with this MA.


Enter up to 45 alphanumeric characters to name the MA.


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.



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.
