Allows you to associate a bridge port extender (BPE) to a slot.
|vpex||Specifies Virtual Port Extender (VPEX).|
|ports||Specifies the switch ports attached to the BPE.|
|port_list||Specifies the switch ports attached to the BPE. Must be in the
format slot:port. Only a single port can be configured at a time.
Note: If the switch port is a LAG, the port specified must be the master port.
|slot||Specifies VPEX BPE slot assignment.|
|slot_num||Specifies VPEX BPE slot assignment. Value must be between 100–162.|
You must enable VPEX mode (enable vpex) before using this command.
The behavior of this command is similar to assigning slots within a chassis. After assigning a slot number to the port extender, you can make port-level configuration choices with the familiar slot:port notation in other commands involving the port extender's ports (for example, configure vlan v1 add port 100:1).
This command causes jumbo frames to be enabled on the specified ports.
The following example assigns a BPE attached to switch port 1:23 to slot 100:
# configure vpex ports 1:23 slot 100
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 22.5.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5420 and 5520 series switches.
