AR500, AR510, and AR530 V200R007 CLI-based Configuration Guide - Ethernet Switching

This document describes the configuration of Ethernet services, including configuring transparent bridge, MAC table, link aggregation, VLANs, STP/RSTP/MSTP, and so on.The document provides the configuration procedures and configuration examples to illustrate the service configuration methods and application scenario.

Configuration Notes

Configuration Notes

This section describes the notes about configuring an Eth-Trunk.

Network Element Involved


License Support

Ethernet link aggregation is a basic feature of a router and is not under license control.

Feature Dependency and Limitation

Before an Eth-Trunk Is Configured:
  • Member interfaces cannot be configured with some services. For example, the link type of a member interface cannot be modified, and static MAC address entries cannot be configured.

  • An Eth-Trunk cannot be added to another Eth-Trunk.
  • Member interfaces of an Eth-Trunk must use the same Ethernet type and rate.

    Interfaces that use different Ethernet types and rates cannot join the same Eth-Trunk. For example, GE and FE interfaces cannot join the same Eth-Trunk, and GE electrical and optical interfaces cannot join the same Eth-Trunk.

  • If an interface of the local device is added to an Eth-Trunk, an interface of the remote device directly connected to the interface of the local device must also be added to an Eth-Trunk so that the two ends can communicate.
  • Both devices of an Eth-Trunk must use the same link aggregation mode.
After an Eth-Trunk Is Configured:
  • An Ethernet interface can be added to only one Eth-Trunk. To add an Ethernet interface to another Eth-Trunk, delete it from the original one first.
  • After interfaces are added to an Eth-Trunk, the Eth-Trunk learns MAC addresses and ARP entries but member interfaces do not.
  • Before deleting an Eth-Trunk, delete member interfaces from the Eth-Trunk.

The AR500 series do not support link aggregation.
