Quickly configures the switch. This command adds the ELAN entry in all three databases (BUSELAN, LESELAN, and LECSELAN) and activates the ELAN.

Administrator

delete elan [ELANNumber] <elannumber>

Administrator

show elan [ELANNumber] <elannumber>

All

Quickly configures the switch. This removes a specific ELAN. This command first checks that all servers (LECS, LES, and BUS) exist before deleting any of them.

Displays an ELAN created by either the quick add elanor the multiple set of commands to add an ELAN. There might not be LECS information (as seen in the first example) if the ELAN was created by add buselan, and add leselanand add lecselanhad not been completed. The LECS information is displayed if you use add elanor if not, after you enter add lecselan(as seen in the following B example below).
