create logical_port eth

create logical_port eth


The create logical_port eth command is used to create a logical Ethernet port.


create logical_port eth name=? eth_port_id=? address_family=? ipv4_address=? ipv4_mask=? [ ipv4_gateway=? ] ipv6_address=? ipv6_mask=? [ ipv6_gateway=? ] [ role=? ] [ is_private=? ] [ activation_status=? ] [ failover_enabled=? ] [ failback_mode=? ] [ failover_group_id=? ] [ ddns_status=? ] [ dns_zone_name=? ] [ listen_dns_query_enabled=? ]





name=? Name of the logical port you want to create.

The value contains 1 to 31 ASCII characters, including digits, letters, underscores (_), hyphens (-), and periods (.).

eth_port_id=? Ethernet port ID.

To obtain the value, run the "show port general physical_type=eth" command.

The value can be "IPv4" or "IPv6".

ipv4_address=? IPv4 address of a logical port.


ipv4_mask=? IPv4 mask of a logical port.


ipv4_gateway=? IPv4 gateway of a logical port.


ipv6_address=? IPv6 address of a logical port.


ipv6_mask=? IPv6 mask of a logical port.


ipv6_gateway=? IPv6 getaway of a logical port.


role=? Logical port role.

The value can be "management", "service", or "management+service", where:

  • "management": the role of management.
  • "service": the role of data.
  • "management+service": the role of management and data.
is_private=? Whether a logical port is private.

The value can be "yes" or "no". The default value is "no".

failover_enabled=? Whether failover is enabled for a logical port.

The value can be "yes" or "no".

failback_mode=? Failback mode of a logical port.

activation_status=? Whether a logical port is activated.

The value can be "yes" or "no".The default value is "yes".

failover_group_id=? Failover group ID.

The value is an integer from 1 to 1024.

ddns_status=? Whether dynamic DNS turns on for a logical port.

The value can be "on" or "off". The default value is "on".

dns_zone_name DNS Zone name.

A name contains 1 to 255 characters and consists of labels separated by periods (.). A label contains 1 to 63 characters including letters (case-insensitive), digits, hyphens (-), and underscores (_), and must start and end with a letter or a digit. To obtain the value, run the "show dns_zone general" command without parameters.

listen_dns_query_enabled Whether the current logical port listens to DNS requests.

The value can be:

  • "no": not listening to DNS requests.
  • "yes": listening to DNS requests.



Usage Guidelines

  • When "address_family" is set to "IPv4","ipv4_address" must be specified.
  • When "address_family" is set to "IPv4","ipv4_mask" must be specified.
  • When "address_family" is set to "IPv6","ipv6_address" must be specified.
  • When "address_family" is set to "IPv6","ipv6_mask" must be specified.


Create a logical Ethernet port.
