I have one EAPS ring protecting 4 VLANs. Currently we have single EAPS domain but we would like another EAPS domain to use bandwidth in a smarter way.

I was wondering if i could use the same Control VLAN for the 2nd EAPS domain or do i need to create another Control VLAN for the 2nd domain?

Hello arbhatt


Each domain needs it's own control VLAN.  So if you have a ring with a domain going clockwise and are creating a domain going counter clockwise then the counter clockwise domain needs a counter clockwise control vlan.

Hope that helps
