Hi,

yes, VMAN is Extreme's name for 802.1ad.

VMAN capabilty is not restricted to a given license. Btw, you can easily check what feature is in what license level reading this doc: http://documentation.extremenetworks.com/FLR/downloads/ExtremeXOS_Feature_License_Requirements.pdf

Is it restricted to the platform or the software ? - because i came across contradictory info.
Is it possible to run it on x450-24t  XOS version 12.4.5.3.  ?

Hi,

The hardware needs to support it, this is the only restriction, as the software feature is included with the lowest license level (L2-Edge). Is that an original x450-24t, or a x450a/e-24t? I don't really recall for the original x450, but I think it has that capability.

Edit:

VMAN is listed in the original x450 DS.
Looking into the 12.4 Concepts Guide, in the Appendixes, x450 is listed as well for the following:
- vMANs—Q-in-Q tunneling (IEEE 802.1ad vMAN tunneling standard)
- vMANs—Egress queue selection based on 802.1p value in S-tag
- vMANs—Egress queue selection based on 802.1p value in C-tag
