How to configure interface on Secondary Switch from Principal switch

[ Edited ]

Hi everybody

 

I am fairly new to Brocade ; this is what I am trying to do in lab environment:

 

 

H1--tengig 1/1--VDX1( Principal)--fabric port---fabric port VDX4 tengig 1/1--H2

 

VDX1# show fabric all

VCS Id: 1
Config Mode: Distributed

Rbridge-id           WWN             IP Address         Name
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
   1       10:00:50:EB:1A:C2:DA:F4   0.0.0.0           >"VDX1"*
   4       10:00:50:EB:1A:C2:63:C4   0.0.0.0            "VDX4"

 

VDX1# show mac-address-table
VlanId   Mac-address       Type     State        Ports
1        748e.f8a4.9b8b    Dynamic  Active       Te 1/0/1
Total MAC addresses    :  1

 

 

 

I need to configure  swithport, switchport mode access on tengig 1/1 on VDX 4 from principal VDX1

 

VDX1(config)# rbridge-id 4
VDX1(config-rbridge-id-4)#

 

What should I do next ?

 

 

Much appreciated!!

Hi Zqadir, 

 

You could always configure any node in the cluster through the Principal Switch. You just need to mention the rbridge id of the switch which you need to configure like in your case it is Rbridge-Id 4. 

 

VDX1(config)# rbridge-id 4
VDX1(config-rbridge-id-4)#interface tengig 1/1

VDX1(config-rbridge-id-4-if)#switchport mode access

Re: How to configure interface on Secondary Switch from Principal switch

If you have logged in on principle switch and you wanna configure an interface 1 on 4th switch, you can do it directly without going into RBridge configuration.

 

switch(config)# interface TenGigabitEthernet 4/0/1

switch(config)# switchport mode access
switch(config)# switchport access vlan <VLAN ID>
