Adding interfaces to a vif
You can add one or more interfaces to a vif to expand your network. You can add physical interfaces to a vif any time after you create it by using the vif add command.
Before you begin
- You must configure additional ports on the switch where the new interfaces will be connected. For information about configuring the switch, see your switch vendor's documentation.
- The interface to be added to the vif must be configured to the down status by using the ifconfig command.
- Enter the following command: vif add vif_name interface_list
vif_name is the name of a previously configured vif.
interface_list is a list of the interfaces you want to add to the vif.
The operation performed using the vif add
command is not persistent across reboots unless the command is added to the /etc/rc
To add the interface e4 to the multimode vif MultiTrunk1, enter with the following command: vif add MultiTrunk1 e4
