Description                                                    Configure a bridge VLAN group for VLAN-to-VLAN bridging.

Syntax                                                                  [no] bridge-vlan-group group-num

Replace group-num with the bridge VLAN group number.

If the ACOS device is a member of an aVCS virtual chassis, specify the group number as follows: DeviceID/group-num

This command changes the CLI to the configuration level for the specified bridge VLAN group, where the following configuration commands are available:




Configures the bridge VLAN group to be able to forward all kinds of traffic.


Configures the bridge VLAN group to be able to typical traffic between hosts, such as ARP requests and responses.

This is the default setting.

[no] name string

Specifies a name for the group. The string can be 1-63 characters long. If the string contains blank spaces, use double quotation marks around the entire string.

There is no default name set.

[no] router-interface ve num

Adds a Virtual Ethernet (VE) interface to the group. This command is applicable only on ACOS devices deployed in routed (gateway) mode. The VE number must be the same as the lowest numbered VLAN in the group.

By default this is not set.

[no] vrid num

Configure a VRID for the bridge VLAN group; this can be used with additional groups sharing the same VRID in VRRP-A configurations.

[no] vlan vlan-id
[vlan vlan-id ... | to vlan vlan-id]

Adds VLANs to the group.

By default this is not set.

Default                                                                By default, the configuration does not contain any bridge VLAN groups. When you create a bridge VLAN group, it has the default settings described above.

Mode                                                                   Configuration mode

Usage                                                                  VLAN-to-VLAN bridging is useful in cases where reconfiguring the hosts on the network either into the same VLAN, or into different IP subnets, is not desired or is impractical.

In bridge VLAN group configurations, the VE number must be the same as the lowest numbered VLAN in the group.

Example                                                            For more information, including configuration notes and examples, see the “VLAN-to-VLAN Bridging” chapter in the System Configuration and Administration Guide.
