set maclock 11-11-11-11-11-11 ge.1.1 enable


I wonder that can we do this command in new Extreme Networks Switch.

Is there any way to set the mac on given port.

Best Regards

There is no way to manually set the MAC address on an XOS switch. The switch has one MAC for all ports.

There is such a locking mechanism for inbound ports on some EOS switches, which switch product are you refering to?
I am refering to x440

Hi Erhan,

MAC-locking has been added in EXOS 15.7. The equivalent command in EXOS is below.

configure mac-locking ports 1 static enable station 11:11:11:11:11:11[/code]
MAC locking will also need to be enabled globally, and on a per port level:

enable mac-locking
enable mac-locking ports 1[/code]
You can find more information on MAC locking in EXOS in the EXOS User Guide, in the "Configuring MAC Locking" section.

I believe you are referring to the MAC Address Locking feature. This was recently added in EXOS 15.7. The equivalent EXOS configuration would be the following:

enable mac-locking
enable mac-locking port 1
configure mac-locking port 1 static add station 11:11:11:11:11:11 #Note this particular MAC address will not work as it is a multicast MAC
configure mac-locking ports 1 static limit-learning 1 #Only allows one static entry to be added to the port[/code]
For more details on MAC Locking you may want to take a look at the 15.7 User Guide starting on page 873.
