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). See Virtual Chassis Port Options for details on which ports you can set as VCPs on different switches.

If you omit member member-id, this command defaults to enabling or disabling the VCP setting on the switch where you run the command.

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

Note

Some switches have ports that are configured as VCPs by default or that are dedicated VCPs (you can only use them as VCPs and for no other purpose). You do not need to explicitly set those ports as VCPs to use them to interconnect the switch into a Virtual Chassis. However,

Also, you can usually disable the VCP setting on default-configured VCPs to use those ports as regular uplink or network ports if you don’t need to use them as VCPs. See Virtual Chassis Port Options for details.

Options

setSet a network port as a VCP to convert an uplink or network port into a VCP.
deleteDelete the VCP setting on a port to convert a VCP back into an uplink or network port.
