Port Association

port-association-create

This command is used to create port associations and assign policies to them. Port association groups are used to enable switch failover. It requires a 10G link between two switches.


 

Caution!Using the virtual-wire parameter places the switch into the Virtual Wire mode and disables other features on the switch. This parameter requires a license. Please contact your sales person or local partner for more information.
