Example for Configuring an Eth-Trunk on an AP's Wired Uplink Interfaces

Example for Configuring an Eth-Trunk on an AP's Wired Uplink Interfaces

Service Requirements

The administrator wants to configure an Eth-Trunk on an AP's wired uplink interfaces to ensure uplink reliability.

Networking Requirements

  • AC networking mode: Layer 2 inline mode

  • Service data forwarding mode: tunnel forwarding

Figure 5-29 Networking for configuring an Eth-Trunk on an AP's wired uplink interfaces

Data Planning

Table 5-35 AC data planning
Item Data

Management VLAN for APs

VLAN 100

AP wired port profile

  • Name: wired-port1
  • Eth-Trunk: Eth-Trunk0

AP group

  • Name: ap-group1
  • Referenced profile: AP wired port profile wired-port1 and wired-port2

Configuration Roadmap

  1. Configure an Eth-Trunk on a switch.
  2. Configure an Eth-Trunk for an AP on the AC.
  3. Restart the AP.
  4. Connect the switch and AP physically.

Configuration Notes

  • This example is applicable to an AP with two or more wired uplink interfaces.

  • This example assumes that the AP has gone online and describes how to configure an Eth-Trunk on the wired uplink interfaces of the AP. Before physical connections, configure the Eth-Trunk. Otherwise, a loop will occur on the network, causing the AP to go offline.

  • Configure port isolation on the interfaces of the device directly connected to APs. If port isolation is not configured and direct forwarding is used, a large number of unnecessary broadcast packets may be generated in the VLAN, blocking the network and degrading user experience.

  • In tunnel forwarding mode, the management VLAN and service VLAN cannot be the same. Only packets from the management VLAN are transmitted between the AC and APs. Packets from the service VLAN are not allowed between the AC and APs.


  1. Check AP information.

    Check Item

    Operation on the Web Platform


    Check the AP's group.

    Choose Monitoring > AP > AP Statistics Collection. Check the AP's group in AP List.

    AP group name: ap-group1

    AP name: AP1

  2. Configure an Eth-Trunk on the switch.

    # Create Eth-Trunk1, and add GE0/0/1 and GE0/0/2 to Eth-Trunk1.
    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [HUAWEI] sysname Switch
    [Switch] vlan batch 100
    [Switch] interface eth-trunk 1
    [Switch-Eth-Trunk1] description Connect to AP1
    [Switch-Eth-Trunk1] port link-type trunk
    [Switch-Eth-Trunk1] port trunk pvid vlan 100
    [Switch-Eth-Trunk1] port trunk allow-pass vlan 100
    [Switch-Eth-Trunk1] undo port trunk allow-pass vlan 1
    [Switch-Eth-Trunk1] port-isolate enable
    [Switch-Eth-Trunk1] quit
    [Switch] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
    [Switch-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] eth-trunk 1
    [Switch-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] quit
    [Switch] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/2
    [Switch-GigabitEthernet0/0/2] eth-trunk 1
    [Switch-GigabitEthernet0/0/2] quit

  3. Configure an Eth-Trunk for the AP on the AC.
    1. Create Eth-Trunk0.

      # Choose Configuration > AC Config > Interface > Eth-Trunk. The Eth-Trunk page is displayed.

      # In Eth-Trunk Interface List, click Create. The Create Eth-Trunk page is displayed.

      # Create Eth-Trunk0 and configure the interface description.

      # Click OK.

    2. Create VLAN 100 and add Eth-Trunk0 to it.

      # Choose Configuration > AC Config > VLAN > VLAN. The VLAN page is displayed.

      # Click Create. The Create VLAN page is displayed.

      # Create VLAN 100. In Available Interface List, select Eth-Trunk0 and click . On the Modify Link Type page, set Link type to Trunk and click OK.

      # Click OK.

    3. Create wired port profile wired-port1, and add GE0 and GE1 on the AP to Eth-Trunk0.

      # Choose Configuration > AP Config > AP Group > AP Group.

      # In the AP group list, select AP group ap-group1. Choose AP > AP Wired Port Settings. The AP Wired Port Configuration List page is displayed.

      # Select GE0. The GE0 configuration page is displayed.

      # Click Create and create AP wired port profile wired-port1. Click OK to return to the GE0 configuration page.

      # Set Enable Eth-Trunk to ON.

      Click OK. In the dialog box that is displayed, click OK.

      # Bind AP wired port profile wired-port1 to GE1 in the same way, and set Enable Eth-Trunk to ON for GE1.

  4. Restart the AP.


    The configuration on the AP's wired interfaces takes effect only after the AP is restarted.

    # Choose Maintenance > AP Maintenance > AP Restart.

    # Select AP1 and click Restart. In the dialog box that is displayed, click OK to restart the AP.

  5. Connect the switch and AP physically.
