Descriptions

Operator

Parameters/Permissions

Description

 

 

 

start lecs

Administrator

Starts an LECS not previously started. If you have stopped an

 

 

LECS, you must restart it before adding ELANs to the LECS

 

 

or clients to the ELAN. You normally keep only one LECS in

 

 

your network, across all VLANs, ELANs, and switches.

 

 

Creating more than one LECS functionally splits the network

 

 

unless the databases are fully replicated.

stop lecs

Administrator

Shuts down the LECS on the local switch.

The status of the LECS setting is persistent, so if you reboot the switch while you have the LECS stopped, the LECS will continue to be stopped, even after rebooting.You have to manually start the LECS again.
