I am working with Extreme ACLs based on current EXOS Firmware - 16.2 or 21.1. i have some question during the daily business tasks with ACLs.
If i do a changes on the .pol file, how can i do a reload of the new policy file - how let the changes go active?
Currently i unconfigure these ACL from all ports and re-configure it again. I am looking for a smarter way.
How can i get a policy/ACL on several switches equal if some changes are necessary? I play aroud with copy the files via WinSCP (later via Netsight scripts) but this has some strange effects. (For example if i overwrite an existing file). Any suggestions?
I use an ACL for mirroring specific traffic to a port. One rule have "mirror;" as action-modifier. And then i "enable mirror to port x".
That works fine - i have only one instance per switch to mirror.
But what can i do if i want to have 2 or more independent ACL-based mirrors on the same switch? The ACL action "mirror" have no clue to a specific mirror instance. Are there a special trick - or is this a current EXOS limitation ?
Thanks a lot for anybody who can help me to my questions.
