Whether NetStream and mirroring functions can be configured simultaneously on a CE series switch
CE12800 series switches: 1. In V100R005C00 and earlier versions, NetStream and port mirroring cannot be configured on the same interface. NetStream may conflict with MQC-based traffic mirroring and VLAN mirroring. After NetStream is configured on an interface, you are advised not to configure any MQC-based traffic mirroring or VLAN mirroring that contains this interface. 2. Since V100R005C10, NetStream sampling can be configured to use snoop resources. This configuration allows inbound NetStream and port mirroring to be configured on the same interface. CE7800&6800&5800 series switches: NetStream and port mirroring cannot be configured on the same interface. NetStream may conflict with MQC-based traffic mirroring and VLAN mirroring. After NetStream is configured on an interface, you are advised not to configure any MQC-based traffic mirroring or VLAN mirroring that contains this interface.

Deleting the mirroring configuration from an S series switch
For S series switches (except S1700 switches), if you want to delete the mirroring configuration, perform the following operations: 1. Run the display current-configuration command to check the current mirroring configuration. For example, you can view the following mirroring configuration. [HUAWEI] display current-configuration # vlan batch 10 20 30 # observe-port 2 interface GigabitEthernet1/0/1 # interface Ethernet0/0/0 ip address 192.168.150.3 255.255.255.0 # interface GigabitEthernet1/0/1 # interface GigabitEthernet1/0/2 ...... # interface GigabitEthernet2/0/1 port-mirroring to observe-port 2 inbound # ...... 2. Run the undo port-mirroring command in the view of the mirrored port to delete the binding between the observing port and mirrored port, and restore the mirrored port to a common port. For example, restore GE2/0/1 in step 1 to a common port. [HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 2/0/1 [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet2/0/1] undo port-mirroring to observe-port 2 inbound [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet2/0/1] quit 3. Run the undo observe-port command in the system view to delete an observing port. For example, delete the observing port in step 1 and restore GE1/0/1 to a common port. [HUAWEI] undo observe-port 2You can delete the observing port only after deleting the binding between the observing port and mirrored port.

Whether S series switch port mirroring function affects PoE power supply
For an S-series switch which has PoE model, it will not affect PoE function after configured the mirroring function .

What are differences between command lines on CE and S series switches
Question
What are the command-line differences between CloudEngine series switches and Huawei Ethernet switches?
Solution
Commands on traditional Ethernet switches take effect immediately, while command lines on CE series switches take effect immediately or in two phases.
l Immediate mode: After a user runs a command and presses Enter, the system checks whether the current configuration is different from the previous configuration. If they are different, the system commits the current configuration and generates the configuration rollback point. As a result, multiple configuration rollback points may be generated when one feature is deployed.
To make a command take effect immediately, run the following command in the user view:
<HUAWEI> system-view immediately
Enter system view, return user view with return command.
[HUAWEI]
l In two-stage mode, after a user runs a series of commands, the system checks the differences between the current and previous configurations and generates a configuration rollback point only when the user runs the commit command. This allows the configurations of multiple commands for a service to take effect in batches.
To make a command take effect in two-stage mode, run the following command in the user view:
<HUAWEI> system-view
Enter system view, return user view with return command.
