Release Information

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Option fpc-slot introduced in Junos OS Release 10.4 for EX Series switches.

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 13.2X50-D15 for the QFX Series.

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 13.2X51-D20 for Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF).

Description

Enable or disable an optical port as a Virtual Chassis port (VCP).

If you omit member member-id, this command defaults to enabling or disabling the uplink VCP or SFP network port configured as a VCP on the switch where the command is issued.

You might experience a temporary traffic disruption immediately after creating or deleting a user-configured VCP in an EX8200 Virtual Chassis.

Note

Some EX Series switches have ports that are configured as VCPs by default. You do not need to explicitly configure those ports as VCPs to use them to interconnect the switch into a Virtual Chassis. See Understanding Virtual Chassis Components for details.

Options

setSet a network port as a VCP to convert a network port into a VCP.
deleteDelete the VCP setting on a port to convert a VCP into a network port.
