Standalone proxy mode is disabled (none) by default.

Usage Guidelines

Fabric Attach standalone proxy allows for Fabric Attach proxy functionality in environments without a Fabric Attach server.

The Fabric Attach standalone proxy does not send provisioning requests upstream. A Fabric Attach standalone proxy automatically accepts requests from Fabric Attach clients and assumes that the upstream network has been provisioned appropriately. Disabling Fabric Attach standalone proxy mode resets configured NSI/VLAN binding data to its default state and enables full Fabric Attach Proxy operation. In Fabric Attach standalone proxy mode, you must provide the Fabric Attach server uplink information, which is typically gathered through Fabric Attach server discovery. After you provide this information, Fabric Attach standalone proxy mode operates as if a Fabric Attach server has been discovered and is accepting NSI/VLAN binding requests. The binding clean-up is similar to a Fabric Attach server timeout event, and occurs when the static uplink is deleted and when Fabric Attach standalone proxy operation is disabled.

To confirm standalone poxy mode, use the show fabric attach statistics command with either the agent or elements option.


The following example enables proxy mode and specifies port 10 as the uplink port:

# configure fabric attach uplink 10
The following example disables proxy mode:
# configure fabric attach uplink none
