Do S series switches support traffic-based RADIUS accounting
For S series switches (except S1700 switches), the RADIUS servers of some vendors support traffic-based accounting, while the RADIUS servers of some vendors do not. Consult the RADIUS server vendor about whether the server supports traffic-based accounting.

Do S series switches support GRE
The following models and versions of S series switches excluding the S1700 support GRE VPN: -Model- -Starting Version - S5710EI V200R003 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S5710EI.) S5700HI V200R003 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S5700HI.) S5710HI V200R003 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S5710HI.) S5720EI V200R007C00 (V200R007C10 and later versions do not support the S5720EI.) S5720HI V200R006 S6300EI V200R005 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S6300EI.) S6320EI V200R008 S7700 V100R003 S9700 V200 R001 S12704 V200R008 S12708/S12712 V200R005 S9300 V100R002 S9300E V200R002 Modular switches (S7700/S9700/S9300/S12700) have the following limitations: - SA series cards (excluding the ET1D2X12SSA0 card) do not support the GRE function. - In V200R005, X1E series cards and the XGE interface connecting ACU2/ET1D2IPS0S00/ET1D2FW00S00/ET1D2FW00S01/ET1D2FW00S02/LE1D2FW00S01 card do not support the GRE function. - In V200R006 and later versions, if the tunnel interface is configured with the service link function, the tunnel type, source address, and destination address configured on this interface cannot be modified.

Do S series switches support dynamic VLAN delivery through the RADIUS server
Dynamic VLAN delivery through the RADIUS server is to deliver VLAN attributes through the RADIUS server to dynamically authorize online users. For S series switches (except the S1700), the S2700SI and S2710SI running V100R006 do not support this function. However, other switch models running V100R006 and all switch models running versions later than V100R006 support this function.

Can an S series switch function as the NTP server
The following is an example of configuring the NTP server function in broadcast mode. [HUAWEI] ntp-service refclock-master 3 //Configure the local clock as the NTP master clock. [HUAWEI] undo ntp-service server disable //Enable the IPv4 NTP server function. [HUAWEI] interface vlanif 100 [HUAWEI-Vlanif100] ip address 10.1.1.1 24 //Configure an IP address for the server. [HUAWEI-Vlanif100] ntp-service broadcast-server //Configure the local switch as the NTP broadcast server.

Do S series switches support the DHCP server polling function on a DHCP relay agent
When functioning as a DHCP relay agent, the S series switch excluding the S1700 supports the DHCP server polling function on a DHCP relay agent starting from V100R006C00. By default, the DHCP server polling function on a DHCP relay agent is disabled. You can enable the DHCP server polling function on a DHCP relay agent by configuring ip relay address cycle in the system view.
