Article Summary: This article explains how to configure multiple interfaces or VLANs at the same time.


1. Configure multiple interfaces at the same time

To configure multiple interfaces at the same time, go into an interface range command.

Input the following commands to enter a range of interfaces.

ftos>enable

ftos#configure

For consecutive ports, the following example uses 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports 2-5 on Unit 0

ftos(config)#interface range te 0/2 - 5

For non-consecutive ports, the following example uses 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports 48 on Unit 0 and 3

ftos(config)#interface range te 0/48 , te 3/48

Note: Notice that starting after range there are spaces after every input in the rest of the command syntax for both examples
Note: To verify the way the ports are defined on your switch, you can run an ftos#show interfaces status

Below is an example to configure the10-Gigabit Ethernet consecutive ports 1 through 5, as well as 8 and 9 on unit 0

ftos(config)#interface range gi 0/1 – 5 , gi 0/8 , gi 0/9

Note: You may configure different interface types at the same time, such as a Gigabit Ethernet, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface
Note: If the syntax of the desired range command is large, it may be easier to type it in notepad and then paste it in the command line.

Note: Non existing interfaces are excluded from bulk configuration

2. Configure multiple VLANs at the same time

Note: Interface range for VLANs does not create new VLANs. It will only configure existing VLANs. Non existing interfaces are excluded from bulk configuration

To configure multiple VLANs at the same time, go into an interface range command.

Input the following commands to enter a range of VLANs.

For consecutive VLANs, the following example uses VLANs 2-10

ftos(config)#interface range vlan 2 - 10

For non-consecutive VLANs, the following example uses VLANs 15 and 20

ftos(config)#interface range vlan 15 , vlan 20

Note: Notice that starting after range there are spaces after every input in the rest of the command syntax for both examples

Below is an example to configure the VLANs 2 through 10, as well as 15 and 20.

ftos(config)#interface range vlan 2 – 10 , vlan 15 , vlan 20
