Hi all,

Does someone know any extreme switch support poet extension feature?(802.1br/802.1qbg)

If there is, can anyone provide product name or info ?

We searched whole extreme XOS release note and command lists based on2.22 and could not find related info.

Which product is capable to be Control bridge?

Which product only support port extension?

Any messages?

Hi, Wed. Support for port extenders is not part of the EXOS product at this time.

Thanks for Larry's kindly responses.

Anyway, we heard X670-G2 support 802.1BR port extender and not sure if this feature called VEPA.

Does this feature in X670-G2 will be implement by 'configure port x reflective-relay on/off'?

Thanks again.

VEPA (reflective relay) only enables the capability to send an ethernet packet back to the same port/vlan as where it is received from. It is designed for a VM server that directs all traffic to the nic instead of to the vswitch and rely on the switch to switch back packets to the VM.
It does nothing with vlans.
