    Hello,

     

    the EX3400 Switches Hardware Overview says that QSFP+ ports can be configured as network port instead of VC ports (default configuration). But I didn't find the procedure to do that on the TechLibrary and on the J-Net forum.

     

    Thanks in advance

    it is the same procedure for all VC switches, also for the EX4300

    Thanks for your help !

    My initial VC configuration was :

     

    fpc0:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Interface   Type              Trunk  Status       Speed        Neighbor
    or                             ID                 (mbps)       ID  Interface
    PIC / Port
    1/1         Configured               Absent  
    1/0         Configured               Absent  

     

    I've deleted the two ports from the VC :

     

    request virtual-chassis vc-port delete pic-slot 1 port 0
    request virtual-chassis vc-port delete pic-slot 1 port 1 

     

     

    Then the two ports are no longer listed on VC ports :

     

    show virtual-chassis vc-port all-members                    
    fpc0:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I will try to plug in tranceivers an check if the et-0/1/0 and et-0/1/1 appears on "show interfaces terse".

     

    Regards,
