Do Ethernet interfaces on CE series switches support switching between Layer 2 and Layer 3 modes
Ethernet interfaces on all CE series switches, except the CE6810LI, support switching between Layer 2 and Layer 3 modes. By default, Ethernet interfaces on CE series switches work in Layer 2 mode. 1. Switching Layer 2 interface to Layer 3 mode: Run the undo portswitch command in the interface view to switch a Layer 2 interface to Layer 3 mode. Before switching, delete all non-default configurations from the interface. 2. Switching Layer 3 interface to Layer 2 mode: Run the portswitch command in the interface view to switch a Layer 3 interface to Layer 2 mode. Before switching, delete all Layer 3 service configurations from the interface.

How is an interface on an NE router switched between Layer 2 and Layer 3 modes
By default, an Ethernet interface of a Layer 3 device, such as a router, usually works in Layer 3 mode. To add the interface to a VLAN or perform other Layer 2 interface configurations, you must run the portswitch command to switch the Layer 3 interface to the Layer 2 mode. To switch the Layer 2 mode back to the Layer 3 mode, run the undo portswitch command. To switch Ethernet interfaces from the Layer 3 mode to the Layer 2 mode in batches, run the portswitch batch command. To switch Ethernet interfaces from the Layer 2 mode to the Layer 3 mode in batches, run the undo portswitch batch command.
