Configure Virtual Switching Framework (VSF) in 2 steps

Did you know you can configure VSF in 2 steps?

 

With 2 Aruba 5400R switches (2x5406R or 2x5412R), both with a factory-default configuration, you can configure VSF in 2 steps.

 

Step 1:

  • Add ports to the VSF link on 1st switch - Enable VSF and assign a domain
    • (config)# vsf member 1 link 1 A1
    • (config)# vsf enable domain 1

Step 2: 

  • Verify 2nd switch has a factory-default configuration and connect 2nd switch to the VSF port on 1st switch 
    • 2nd switch will automatically enable VSF and add the connected port to the VSF link

Learn more about Virtual Switching Framework in the ArubaOS-Switch Management and Configuration Guide K/KA/KB.16.01 here.

Hi mithun_raam, 

 

I assume you mean VSF and not VRF as they are two different technologies.

 

Only 10g and 40g ports are supported as VSF ports on the 5400R switch.

 

Thanks,

Hi,  any roudmap VSF for 3810? is better standardize stacking via VSF for 3810 as support dac cable with sfp+ port. The spec also high differ with 2930F. 

 

All commware switch series support IRF if the switch support SFP+ with DAC cable. Doesnt make sense if 2930F support VSF, 3810 didnt support VSF. Spec lower than 2930 + not full layer 3 features. 

 

Hopefully you can rise up this issue to RND

Hi fiq,

 

We currently do not have plan to add VSF to 3810.  The 3810 has plug-n-play high-performance back-plane stacking and full L3 capability.  Thanks for sharing your feedback though; I will take this into consideration.

Hi Kchang,

 

Thanks for your feedback. Any option to make it as single IP management without used backplane stacking module. Something like HPE 2530 stacking. Or maybe can provide me beta firmware
