Is there any way to use vlan groups for Switch Trunk Uplink Ports on Aruba-CX Switches?

    Hi,

    Is there any way to use vlan groups for Switch Trunk Uplink Ports?

    This would save a lot of time and leads to less misconfiguration.

    Example:

    configured vlans 999, 1900,1920,1940,1960,1980
    Appropriate IP Networks 190.0/23, ... 198.0/23
    vlan 999 is a local quarantine vlan and is not intended for uplink Interfaces.

    Actual interface configuration:

    vlan trunk native 1
    vlan trunk allowed 1,1900,1920,1940,1960,1980

    on initial configuration we can use the allowed all and no no allowed 999 command, but in production, this is not an option.

    so it would be very helpful, if it could work like this:

    vlan-group GROUP1
      associate vlan 1,1900,1920,1940,1960,1980

    interface lag52
       vlan trunk native 1
       vlan trunk allowed vlan-group GROUP1


    alternative at this way:

    vlan-group GROUP1
      vlan trunk native 1
      vlan 1,1900,1920,1940,1960,1980

    interface lag 52
      apply vlan-group GROUP1


    So the idea is, if a new VLAN is required, it would be configured and added to the vlan-group and then automatically adapted to all interfaces with the vlan-group applied.

    Is there any function like this? If not, I would make a new topic @ innovation zone...
    UPDATE: I didn't see it before... There is a similar topic --> Apply group config for interfaces | Aruba Innovation Zone (arubanetworks.com)

    For port-access there is such a vlan-group command, see @:

    AOS-CX 10.7: Port-access VLAN Group | Wired (arubanetworks.com)

    Thanks and Kind Regards

    Robert

    Hi Robert, what you proposed:

    vlan-group GROUP1
      associate vlan 1,1900,1920,1940,1960,1980

    interface lag52
       vlan trunk native 1
       vlan trunk allowed vlan-group GROUP1

    seems a very nice addition!
