I want to change one of the 40G port of brocade vdx 8770-8 as sfp breakout port. but it is giving error " Connector configuration is not supported on port 1/4/7. port -group in density mode. please help me.
I m following these steps:
vdx8770(confi- hardware)#connector 1/4/7
%%Error: Connector configuration is not supported on port 1/4/7. port -group in density mode.
VDX is not longer supported by brocade. see below:
about you Problem:
from command Guide
Usage GuidelinesUse this command to set Performance or Density (default) operating modes for port groups 1-9 on the 27x40 GbE line card.When a port group is configured In Performance mode, the third port in the port group is persistently disabled, but theremaining two ports operate at up to 40 Gbps in Performance mode to achieve the 80 Gbps maximum rate for the port group.QSFP breakout mode is only supported on ports configured in Performance mode.If Density mode (default) is configured for a port group, all three ports in the group are enabled in Density mode, so cannotsupport the 40 Gbps maximum rate. If this mode is configured on all port groups, 27 total ports are available for use.For more information on port groups and the Performance and Density operating modes on the line card, refer to the"Overview" chapter in the Brocade 8770-4 and 8770-8 Hardware Reference Manuals.Enter no performance mode to restore the default value. Power off the line card before configuring operating modes.
ExamplesTo enable Performance mode on port group 9 of the line card in slot 3 of switch with RBridge ID 1.switch# configure terminalEntering configuration mode terminalswitch(config)# hardwareswitch(config-hardware)# port-group 1/3/9switch(config-port-group-1/3/9)# mode performance%Warning: port-group mode performance is a disruptive command.Please save the running-config to startup-config and a power-cycle for thechanges to take place.
