How to assign ports to VSs

22

VSs work in group mode and port mode. The admin-VS cannot be configured and can be considered a VS in port mode.

- All the ports on the same forwarding chip of an LPU must be assigned to VSs in group mode.
You can run the display device port-map [ slot slot-id ] command in the user or system view to check ports on an LPU that belong to the same forwarding chip.
<HUAWEI> display device port-map slot 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Slot    Type           Engine    Interface
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
1       CE-L24XS-EA    0         10GE1/0/0     - 10GE1/0/23
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
For example, if 24 ports on a CE-L24XS-EA belong to the same forwarding chip, all these ports will be assigned to VSs in group mode.

- Any ports on an LPU can be assigned to VSs in port mode according to network requirements.

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 do I configure VSs
The following describes the basic configuration procedure, which is for reference only. For the detailed configuration procedure and precautions, see the appropriate configuration guide.
<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] admin
[~HUAWEI-admin] virtual-system vs1      //Create a VS named vs1.
[*HUAWEI-admin-vs:vs1] port-mode group      //Configure vs1 to work in group mode.(VSs can work in group or port mode.)
[*HUAWEI-admin-vs:vs1] assign interface 10GE 1/0/0      //Allocate a physical port to vs1.
Warning: All configurations of the interfaces will be deleted. All interfaces of
 the same group will be assigned. Continue? [Y/N]: y
[*HUAWEI-admin-vs:vs1] quit
[*HUAWEI-admin] commit
[~HUAWEI-admin] display virtual-system
---------------------------------------------
Name                             Status
---------------------------------------------
Admin-VS                         running
vs1                              running
---------------------------------------------
If the status of a VS is running, the VS is created.

How are patch files loaded for VSs
System patch files can only be loaded in the Admin-VS, but not in other VSs.

Why cannot TRILL be configured in the Admin-VS after VSs are configured in port mode
Constraints for configuring TRILL are as follows: - TRILL can be configured in the Admin-VS if there is no VS in port mode. No VS in port mode can be configured after TRILL is configured in the Admin-VS. - If VSs in port mode are configured, TRILL cannot be configured in any VS in port mode, including the Admin-VS. - All VSs in group mode support TRILL configuration.
