Identifying switch ports and interfaces

Physical ports on the switch and their corresponding logical software interfaces are identified using the format:

On the 6200 Switch Series
  • member: Member number of the switch in a Virtual Switching Framework (VSF) stack. Range: 1 to 8. The primary switch is always member 1. If the switch is not a member of a VSF stack, then member is 1.
  • slot: Line module number. Always 1.
  • port: Physical number of a port on a line module.
For example, the logical interface 1/1/4 in software is associated with physical port 4 in slot 1 on member 1.
