SVF Management and Maintenance

SVF Management and Maintenance

Interface Numbering Rules

In an SVF system, parent switches are identified and managed using their stack member IDs, and leaf switches are identified and managed using their leaf IDs. Therefore, interfaces on a parent switch are numbered in the format member stack ID/subcard ID/interface number, and interfaces on a leaf switch are numbered in the format leaf ID/subcard ID/interface number.

Logging In to an SVF System

As a virtual device, an SVF system is configured and managed through the parent switch. You can use either of the following methods to log in to an SVF system:
  • Through the console interface or management interface of any parent switch

  • Through the console interface or management interface of any leaf switch

    When users connect to the management interfaces of the parent and leaf switches of an SVF system, only the user connecting to the parent switch can log in to the SVF system.

You must specify the IP address of the parent switch when logging in to the SVF system remotely.

Configuration and Management

In an SVF system, the leaf switches do not have configuration and management functions, and they are configured and managed on the parent switch. After you configure the leaf switches on the parent switch, the configuration information is saved on the parent switch. The leaf switches do not save any configuration. If a leaf switch is restarted or replaced by a new leaf switch, the parent switch delivers configuration to the leaf switch through the SVF link. Similar to interface cards of modular switches, leaf switches are plug-and-play.
