    Specifying the Available Ethertypes to Create a Dynamic VLAN Subinterface

    You can use the svlan ethertype command to specify the available Ethertypes that a packet must use to create a dynamic VLAN subinterface.

    You can choose one of the following Ethertype values:

    • 8100—Specifies Ethertype value 0x8100, as defined in IEEE Standard 802.1q
    • 88a8—Specifies Ethertype value 0x88a8, as defined in draft IEEE Standard 802.1ad
    • 9100—Specifies Ethertype value 0x9100
    • autoconfig—Specifies that the packet can use any Ethertype to create a dynamic VLAN subinterface

    To specify the available Ethertypes that a packet must use to create a dynamic VLAN subinterface:

    • Issue the svlan ethertype command in Profile Configuration mode.
    host1(config-profile)#svlan ethertype 8100 host1(config-profile)#svlan ethertype autoconfig

    Use the no version to restore the default value, autoconfig.
