How do i change an EX port back to an E port on 7800 router

  • 1.  How do i change an EX port back to an E port on 7800 router

    Posted 07-29-2014 04:55 AM

    The only way I could figure out how to change an EX port (once configured) back to an E port was clear the routers config. Is there a command to change EX back to E ports.

     

    The same for VEX ports connecting two routers. At present I have two routers with an online tunnel all working fine. One router has been configured with a VEX port. The other side has a VE port which allows the tunnel to come up.

     

    If I wanted to allow these to merge into a single backbone fabric what command can I use to change VEX to VE

    Two options, I believe...

     

    portcfgvexport XX –a 2 –f YY (XX = desired port) (YY= Fabric ID)

     

    or

     

    portCfgDefault slot/port
