  • 1.  Q about xe ports

    Posted 02-22-2024 11:11

    Hello all,

    first time poster...short time follower, so I have an EX2300-C that I'm practicing on (for the 104 exam)and followed a doc to setup dhcp on this switch. The steps were to configure xe-0/0/0 and xe-0/0/1, which I followed and got NO errors back. If I do a show interfaces xe-0/0/0 terse it displays the config I gave them. But when I do a show interfaces terse I don't see any xe ports??

    I was thinking the xe on the 2300 was the 10G physical ports but it looks like they're virtual?? I'm not understanding. If anyone can simply explain the difference between ge and xe, or point me in the right direction that would be great!

    The ex2300-c has only two ports that are capable of 10G.  They are  the sfp+ ports and are  on pic 1 so the interface names would be

    xe-0/1/0 and xe-0/1/1

    You can see the pic layout using the command

    show chassis hardware

    And you could see the original default configuration of all these ports by temporarily loading the default configuration in config mode

    load factory-default

    the show the interface section it will include a default configuation for these sfp ports in both ge and xe format depending on the optic inserted.

    Restore the original configuration with the command

    rollback
