802.1q - What do I need to know, and how do I set it up on my VDX 6740

I'm trying to find resources on 802.1q and how to configure my VDX 6740. I find little bits and pieces but they don't make sense when the setting for Cisco is extremely simple "switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q"

Hello,

Setting up the VDX6740 should also be quite simple and follows the Cisco structure (from what I recall of Cisco)

for example to add vlan 10 to an interface

int vlan 10

int te 1/1/1

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk allow vlan add 10

 

That's about it.  The VDX6740 only supports 802.1Q as a trunk encapsulation so you don't need to specify the trunking protocol.

 

This is covered in more detail in the L2 switching guide

 

Regards

Steve
