Configure a source switch in a remote mirroring session

Enter the mirror remote ip command on the source switch to configure a remote destination switch for a mirroring session on the source switch. The source IP address, UDP port number, and destination IP address that you enter must be the same values that you entered with the mirror endpoint ip command.


After you configure a mirroring session with traffic-selection criteria and a destination, the switch immediately starts to mirror traffic to the destination device connected to each exit port. In a remote mirroring session that uses IPv4 encapsulation, if the remote (endpoint) switch is not already configured as the destination for the session, its performance may be adversely affected by the stream of mirrored traffic. For this reason, Hewlett Packard Enterprise strongly recommends that you configure the endpoint switch in a remote mirroring session, as described on the previous page in the section titled "For a remote mirroring session", before using the mirror remote ip command in this section to configure the mirroring source for the same session.
