If i read the documentation correctly it should be possible to combine standard tagged Vlans and VMAN Selective QinQ CEP on one port? I just can't figure out how to get it working. When i enable CEP the CLI says:

Error: 45: Port cannot belong to VLAN and a VMAN at the same time

Does anybody have any experience with this configuration?

Hi Oscar,

I have the X670 G1 as core switches.

I just found the problem. If a port is connected to the default VLAN 1 it does not work.

You have to take the port out of Vlan 1 default and then the CEP function works without issue..

Should be noted in the documentation.. :)

Thanks for the help!

Hi Michael, you cannot have a vman and a vlan untagged to a port, so this default vlan that is on all ports by default was causing the problem.
Thanks for the update and finding the cause.
