There is a command in EXOS for "interface vlan x" "shutdown"?


I want to disable the IP of one vlan. In EOS is pretty simple

interface vlan X
shutdown

But I haven't found anything similar in EXOS. There is
disable ipforwarding
but it's not the same, as the IP is still up and running.

Any idea?

unconfigure ipaddress
The above is the only solution I have found. It does add extra work when you want to bring the IP interface back up.

It would be nice to have the option of disabling the interface and simply enabling it down the road. Are there any plans to make that available in the future.

Thanks,
Thanks, but this is not exactly the same. It deletes the configuration. If you do this, there is no way to enable it again. You have to recreate the configuration (IP, mask, gateway). And I'm trying to avoid it.

Kind regards,

disable vlan
does not work is you have some L2 protocol active. On top of that disables switching, which is something I don't want.

Thanks
We tried to do this for a cut over and found the gear was still choosing to forward traffic to the disabled VLAN. So we ended up having to delete the IP and then add it back when we where ready to bring a building online.

This was a while back, I think summer of 2015. We felt it was a bug and talked about reporting it but I do not recall if we did, and I do not know if the functionality with this was improved.
