Enabling Multiple Subscribers on a VLAN Logical Interface for a Static Subscriber Group

For a given interface, only a single static subscriber group (or static subscriber) is logged in. Although we do not recommend this practice, you might have other kinds of subscribers configured on the same interface, such as a DHCP subscriber managed by the DHCP application. You can use the aggregate-clients statement to extend the dynamic profile for a static subscriber group to enable multiple subscribers to share the same VLAN logical interface.

You can specify that attributes (such as CoS or firewall) for the multiple subscribers are merged for the logical interface. That is, the profiles for multiple subscribers of different types are instantiated on the interface, but the profile attributes of each are merged together. Alternatively, you can specify that the instantiated profile for the current subscriber group is replaced by the profile of a new subscriber that logs in using the same logical interface. This configuration overrides the configuration applied to all static subscribers that are not members of the group.

You can specify that attributes (such as CoS or firewall) for the multiple subscribers are merged for the logical interface. Alternatively, you can specify that the logical interface is replaced when a new subscriber logs in using the same logical interface. This configuration overrides the configuration applied to all static subscribers that are not members of the group.

To enable multiple subscribers to share the same VLAN logical interface for a static subscriber group, do one of the following:

  • Specify that the multiple subscriber attributes are merged for the logical interface.
    [edit system services static-subscribers group boston dynamic-profile dyn-profile-2]user@host# set aggregate-clients merge
  • Specify that the entire logical interface is replaced when a new subscriber logs into the network using the same VLAN logical interface.
    [edit system services static-subscribers group boston dynamic-profile dyn-profile-4]user@host# set aggregate-clients replace
