show vid – CLI command showvid.py - script

Extreme has received a number of requests to have a show command for VLANs in VLAN ID (VID) order.

When creating VLANs using the VID form in EXOS 16.1 CLI commands, the VLAN name is automatically created.

# create vlan 10-20
To provide customized meaning to the VID (EXOS 16.1), the VLAN description is used.

# create vlan 10 description "Finance Bldg 12"
Targeted for 16.2 in the summer of 2016 and 21.1.2 and 22.1 later in 2016 is the

# show vid command

This CLI command displays the VLANs in VID order along with the description.

In addition, available today for EXOS releases 15.6.2 and later, on the Extreme Github site, is the same function in a script:


# run script showvid.py -h
usage: showvid [-h] [-v VLAN]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-v VLAN, --vlan VLAN VLAN ID range 1,2 or 1-5

# run script showvid.py

# run script showvid.py -h
usage: showvid [-h] [-v VLAN]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-v VLAN, --vlan VLAN VLAN ID range 1,2 or 1-5[/code][/code]# run script showvid.py
