Omniswitch 6400 - how to tag a SFP port

Post by burtzz » 26 May 2015 04:58

Hi guys,

I'm completely new to Alcatel switching.
My experience comes from HP and Cisco products.

I configuring a simple scenario with one core switch and 3 edge.
All edge switches connect to the Core using fiber uplink with an SFP.

I have 2 vlans, the default vlan and vlan10. I have ports tagged on vlan10 on all switches.

I'm trying to propagate vlan10 from core to all edge switches, so I need to tag the uplink ports.

And here's is the problem, I can't manage to find where I configure the tag on the SFP port.

Over in "interface configuration" menu, the fiber uplinks appear as Hybrid Interfaces 1 2 3 4.

In 802.1Q (port tagging) how can I select these ports?
Because I guess if I tag Slot 1 Port 1 I will be tagging the copper interface and not the fiber, right?

Hybrid ports mean you can use Copper or SFP (same as hybrid ports in Cisco), but you configure the port (1/1) regardless of media that you use.
Cisco is same: you configure gig eth 0/24 and not "the sfp part only"
So tagging vlan 10 to the ports 1/1 is
vlan 10 802.1q 1/1
vlan 10 802.1q 1/2
vlan 10 802.1q 1/3
vlan 10 802.1q 1/4, as rekeds already stated

You know that you used a wrong categorty for the thread?
