Configures the switch as either the EAPS master node or as an EAPS transit node for the specified domain.
|name||Specifies the name of an EAPS domain.|
|master||Specifies that this switch should be the master node for the named EAPS domain.|
|transit||Specifies that this switch should be the transit node for the named EAPS domain.|
One node (or switch) on the ring must be configured as the master node for the specified domain; all other nodes (or switches) on the ring are configured as transit nodes for the same domain.
If you have considerable knowledge and experience with EAPS, you might find the EAPS loop protection warning messages unnecessary. For more information, see the configure eaps config-warnings off command.
The following example identifies this switch as the master node for the domain named eaps_1:
configure eaps eaps_1 mode master
The following example identifies this switch as a transit node for the domain named eaps_1:
configure eaps eaps_1 mode transit
The switch displays the following warning message and prompts you to confirm this action:
WARNING: Make sure this specific EAPS domain has a Master node in the ring. If you change this node from EAPS master to EAPS transit, you could cause a loop in the network. Are you sure you want to change mode to transit? (y/n)
Enter y to identify the switch as a transit node. Enter n to cancel this action.
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
The interactive messages were added in ExtremeXOS 11.4.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
