why does show interface brief only show 1 VDX switch?

Postby admin » Mon Jul 28, 2014 1:07 pm

I found that in my 4 node VCS cluster of Brocade VDX 6740s the output of "show ip int brief" or "show interface description" only shows the port information of the switch I'm connected to.

BrocadeVDX01# show vcs
Config Mode : Distributed
VCS Mode : Logical Chassis

When you are in Logical Chassis mode you need to issue the following commands to view the information on all of the ports in the cluster.

Code: Select all
show interface description rbridge-id all

Code: Select all
show ip interface brief rbridge-id all


By adding the "rbridge-id all" you tell the cluster to include all of the ports in the cluster.

These commands were tested on software version 4.1.2ac
