Description (partial)


Even though FEX HIF ports (downlink port) can not be configured with spanning-tree ports, DCNM allows it to configure.

Ex: interface ethernet 100/1/1
         spanning-tree port type edge

The above configuration is not supported in CLI, but the same configuration can be performed via DCNM.


When user performs the above configuration via DCNM ( DCNM sends the configuration request via XML ), device is not give the same validation as it sends for the configurtation via CLI. When the configuaration is made via DCNM, switch sends the XML response as "ok". Means, the configuration was successful. So, it will look like DCNM allowed that config.
