targeted-options (Manual Targeting)


Hierarchy Level


Configure manual targeting or auto-targeting.



Configure manual targeting type as manual or auto.

  • Values:

    • auto—Configure targeted-distribution without specific primary and backup links.

    • manual—Configure targeted distribution with specific member links as primary and backup for a subscriber. When you configure manual targeting, you must always configure a primary link. Configuring a backup link is optional. You specify the primary and backup links for a subscriber in the individual interface configuration. You configure primary and backup links by using the targeted-options statement at the [edit interfaces name unit] hierarchy level.

      Manual targeting enhances the distribution of targeted VLANs or subscribers across member links of an aggregated Ethernet bundle by making it bandwidth-aware.

  • Default: auto

The remaining statements are described separately.
