VOSS: Adding port to vlan - difference between portmember | none | static

VOSS: Adding port to vlan - difference between portmember | none | static

Hi,

handling vlan membership within VOSS needs some clarification to me.

This is the used command:

vlan members add <1-4059> {slot/port[/sub-port][-slot/port[/subport]][,...]} [{portmember|static|notallowed}]

What is the (exact and maybe internal) difference if i one if the optional appendix [{portmember|static|notallowed}] or no appendix is used?

I try none and portmember is the same …
So i guess portmember is default value. Or is there another difference ?

What’s about static ?

Notallowed is maybe used to avoid that dynamic protocols like MVRP/GVRP will assign a specific vlan to that port. Correct ?

Unfortunately Manualy (not CLI ref nor VLAN User Guide descibe this 3 commands)

I hope that someone out there have an answer to this question.

 

BR,

Matthias

99.999999% of the time you will just use the following command

vlan member add 192 1/1  

As you discovered that will add the vlan as a portmember and append that line to the config file.

 

The other options are required if you are doing policy based VLANs.  

Its described here on pg 17.

Someone may come in and correct me, but TTBOMK those commands are required if you are doing a NAC solution with dynamic VLAN assignment but you want certain ports to behave in a certain way.   I.E.  You have a NAC policy for Printers and a Printer VLAN, but you never want a printer to be pluged into a certain port.  I guess you can lock down the ports.
