  • 1.  Common interfaces configuration strategy

    Posted 21 days ago


    I'm a little bit confused about the right strategy to use when you need to apply a common set of configuration to some interfaces.

    I understood that I can configure a range like this where I can set some common config:

    admin@switch# show interfaces interface-range myrangename
    member ge-0/0/45;
    member ge-1/0/44;
    member ge-1/0/45;
    member ge-1/0/47;
    member ge-0/0/44;
    native-vlan-id 888;
    unit 0 {
        family ethernet-switching {
            interface-mode trunk;
            vlan {
                members 900-903;
            storm-control default;

    Now I would expect to fine my interfaces stated in the previous piece of config already configured in that way but unfortunately it doesn't work.

    Maybe I misunderstood the purpose of interface-range 

    Thanks  for your help

    Hi Mauro, 

    Can you please let me know what specifically doesn't work, and what configuration specifically you want to achieve? 

    Is it essentially a baseline for future configurations?

    I would like to set some config and the move in and out specific ports when needed without apply the specific config on the port instead of move the port in a specific config.

    I tried but I found that showing the port config that rules where not applied. It looks that the native vlan is not correctly passed to the port:

    show ethernet-switching interface ge-0/0/44
    Routing Instance Name : default-switch
    Logical Interface flags (DL - disable learning, AD - packet action drop,
                             LH - MAC limit hit, DN - interface down,
                             MMAS - Mac-move action shutdown,  AS - Autostate-exclude enabled,
                             SCTL - shutdown by Storm-control, MI - MAC+IP limit hit)
    Logical         Vlan                   TAG   MAC    MAC+IP STP         Logical          Tagging
    interface       members                      limit  limit  state       interface flags
    ge-0/0/44.0                                  32768  0                                   tagged
                    vlan900-wifi_test      900   32768  0      Forwarding                   tagged
                    vlan901-wifi_client    901   32768  0      Forwarding                   tagged
                    vlan902-wifi_mobile    902   32768  0      Forwarding                   tagged
