TRILL Links

On an existing TRILL network, the interfaces that connect swiches are configured as “port link-type trunk” if I reconfigure these to be “port link-type hybrid” then we can also run layer 2 Vlan’s  (not part of TRILL) on the same links.<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

I have tested this on eNSP, however on the real switches, what are the implications of changing the port configuration, will there be an outage?

Doing this on eNSP, there was none

it's possible to configure trill interface as hybrid, in order to forward trill data packets and native ethernet data packets, but there are many precautions to consider, for example, you can't use hybrid in a stack environment.

There will be a short outage, depending on how fast you can adjust the configuration, it's best to do the changes out of business hours during maintenance window in order to monitor the outcome.
