This command is used to modify a virtual port on a switch. Virtual ports track information across nodes on the fabric.

mac mac-address

Specify the MAC address of the vPort.

Specify the following options:

vnet vnet-name

Specify a vNET assigned to the vPort.

bd bridge-domain-name

Specify the Bridge Domain assigned to vPort.

vlan vlan-id

Specify a VLAN from 0 to 4095.

vxlan 0..16777215

VXLAN assigned to vPort.

ip ip-address

Specify an IP address.

owner node-name

Specify the switch ID.

intf intf-number

Specify the interface number.

inner-vlan 0..4095

Specify the Q-in-Q inner VLAN assigned to vPort.

public-vlan vlan-id

Specify the ID of the public VLAN.

num-ips num-ips-number

Specify the number of IP addresses for the vPort.

config-intf config-intf-number

Specify the configuration interface number.

svc-name svc-name-string

Specify the vCenter connection service name.

hostname hostname-string

Specify the host name of the switch.

entity entity-string

Specify the VM or VM Kernel device name.

power none|powered-off|powered-on|standby|suspended|unknown

Specify the number of CPUs assigned to the VM.

os os-string

Specify an operating system, such as CentOS or Ubuntu, on the VM.

portgroup portgroup-string

Specify the Port Group name associated with VM MAC address.

pg-vlans vlan-list

Specify the valid VLANs for the port group.

vswitch vswitch-string

Specify the vitual switch name associated with the NIC.

vs-type none|host-vs|distributed-vs|unknown

Specify the virtual switch type.

vnic-type untagged|tagged|trunked|vm-mgmt|vm-kernel|vMotion|vSAN|FTL|rep|p-NFC|r-NFC|mgmt|unknown

Specify the type of vNIC attached to the VM or VM Kernel.

config none|owner|ip|port|hostname|entity|cpus|os

VM configuration.

rem-switch node-name

Specify the remote switch for the vPort.

hw-index hw-index-number

Specify the hardware index number.

rt-if rt-if-string

Specify the router interface.

hw-flags invalid-vlan|invalid-port

Specify the vPort hardware flags.

Defaults   None

Access   CLI

Usage   Use this command to modify a vPort configuration on the switch. vPorts are mirrored across the fabric so that every switch knows about all the L2 entries on the fabric. This is useful for troubleshooting connections across the fabric.

Examples  To modify a vPort with the MAC address of 06:60:00:02:10:38, IP address of, and change the VLAN to 107, use the following syntax:

CLI (network-admin@switch) > vport-modify mac 06:60:00:02:10:38 vlan 107 ip
