How are MAC addresses allocated in VSs on a CE12800 switch

20

CE12800 series switches support 256 MAC addresses and 16 VSs (including the Admin-VS), with 32 MAC addresses assigned for the Admin-VS, and 8 for other VSs.
- Admin-VS: The first MAC address is assigned to the management interface, the second one to Layer 2 protocols, and the others to VLANIF interfaces.
- Other VSs: The first MAC address is assigned to Layer 2 protocols and the others to VLANIF interfaces.

How to check the port groups on CE12800 switches when VSs are allocated
Two modes are available for the VSs on CE12800 switches:
- Port mode: Any port on an interface card can be flexibly allocated to any VS.

- Port group mode: All ports on the same forwarding chip of an interface card must be allocated to the same VS. When VSs in port group mode are allocated, you need to know the mappings between the ports and forwarding chips to reasonably plan the use of the ports. You can run the display device port-map [ slot slot-id ] command on a CE12800 to check the mappings between the ports and forwarding chips.

How many VSs can be created on a CE12800 switch
A maximum of 16 VSs including the Admin-VS can be created on a CE12800 switch. When the default resource specifications are used, you can create seven VSs in port group mode. To create more VSs in port group mode, adjust the number of VLANs to be used by VSs.

Static DHCP binding configuration on S series switch
In static DHCP binding mode, fixed IP addresses can be assigned to DHCP clients with specific MAC addresses. For example, you can assign fixed IP address 10.10.10.10 to a client with MAC address dcd2-fc96-e4c0 on an S series switch except an S1700 switch: - For a global address pool: [HUAWEI] ip pool 1 //Enter the view of an IP address pool. [HUAWEI-ip-pool-1] static-bind ip-address 10.10.10.10 mac-address dcd2-fc96-e4c0 - For an interface address pool: [HUAWEI] interface vlanif 10 //Enter the view of the interface for which an IP address has been configured. [HUAWEI-Vlanif10] dhcp server static-bind ip-address 10.10.10.10 mac-address dcd2-fc96-e4c0 Note: The configured IP address cannot be the same as the assigned one. If the configured IP address has been assigned, run the reset ip pool { interface pool-name | name ip-pool-name } { start-ip-address [ end-ip-address ] | all | conflict | expired | used } command in the user view to manually reclaim the IP address in an address pool.

How is static binding configured on an AR
Static DHCP binding allows the AR to allocate fixed IP addresses to user terminals with fixed MAC addresses. The AR needs to allocate the fixed IP address to the client with the MAC address of dcd2-fc96-e4c0. The configuration method is as follows: - Based on the global address pool: [Huawei] ip pool 1 //Address segments have been configured in the address pool. [Huawei-ip-pool-1] static-bind ip-address 10.10.10.10 mac-address dcd2-fc96-e4c0 - Based on the interface address pool: [Huawei] interface vlanif 10 //An IP address has been assigned to the interface. [Huawei-Vlanif10] dhcp server static-bind ip-address 10.10.10.10 mac-address dcd2-fc96-e4c0 The configured IP address cannot be the IP address that has been assigned. If the system displays a message indicating that the IP address has been assigned, run the reset ip pool { interface pool-name | name ip-pool-name } { start-ip-address [ end-ip-address ] | all | conflict | expired | used } command in the user view to manually reclaim IP addresses in the address pool.
