Configures a standalone switch to be addressed with a slot number.
|system||Configures system settings.|
|ports||Configures system ports settings.|
|notation||Configures system port notation settings.|
|slot:port||Designates slot:port notation. For example, 1:47. (Default on stacks and Extended Edge Switching). Also designates a 5720 slot:port:chennel notation. For example, 5:49:3 for Slot 5 Port 49 Channel 3.|
|slot||Designates standard slot notation. For example, 1/47.|
|port||Designates standard port notation. For example, 1/47. Also designates a channelized 5720 port. For example, Port 49 Channel 3.|
By default, on standalone switches, port notation is used.
By default, on stacks/Extended Edge Switching, slot:port notation is used.
You can configure a standalone system as a slotted system with this command, which allows for commands which had ‘slot‘ arguments to be visible and take in a valid slot number of ‘1‘, along with any port arguments specified in ‘slot‘:‘port‘ notation. In turn, any command output would specify ‘slot‘ information and ports displayed in ‘slot‘:‘port‘ or slot/port notation.
Note5720 VIM-6YE ports are not channelized and map to ports 51-53 and 54-56.
NoteSwitches running Release 31.6 or earlier that are connected to a channelized 5720 port will not display the correct port number via the Extreme Discovery Protocol. The port numbers will display correctly via the Link Layer Discovery Protocol.
This command requires a configuration save and reboot to take effect.
To view the port notation status, use the show management command.
The following example changes a standalone switch to have slot:port notation:
# configure system ports notation slot:port This command will take effect after the next reboot.
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 30.2.
The slot/port keyword was added in ExtremeXOS 31.4.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
