mode

Configures a front-panel unified port group to operate in Fibre Channel or Ethernet mode, or a QSFP28-DD port to operate in Ethernet mode, with the specified speed on activated interfaces.

Syntax
mode {Eth {100g-2x | 100g-1x | 40g-2x | 40g-1x | 25g-8x [fabric-expander-mode] | 25g-4x | 10g-8x | 10g-4x} | FC {32g-2x | 32g-1x | 16g-4x | 16g-2x |8g-4x}}
Parameters
  • mode Eth — Configure a port group in Ethernet mode and set the speed to:
    • 100g-2x — Split a QSFP28-DD port into two 100GE interfaces.
    • 100g-1x — Reset a QSFP28 port group to 100GE mode.
    • 40g-2x — Split a port group into two 40GE interfaces.
    • 40g-1x — Set a port group to 40G mode for use with a QSFP+ 40GE transceiver.
    • 25g-8x fabric-expander-mode — Split a QSFP28-DD port into eight 25GE interfaces for connection to a Fabric Expander.
    • 25g-8x — Split a port group into eight 25GE interfaces.
    • 25g-4x — Split a port group into four 25GE interfaces.
    • 10g-8x — Split a port group into eight 10GE interfaces.
    • 10g-4x — Split a port group into four 10GE interfaces.
  • mode FC — Configure a port group in Fibre Channel mode and set the speed to:
    • 32g-2x — Split a port group into two 32GFC interfaces, subports 1 and 3.
    • 32g-1x — Split a port group into one 32GFC interface, subport 1.
    • 16g-4x — Split a port group into four 16GFC interfaces; supports 4x32GFC oversubscription.
    • 16g-2x — Split a port group into two 16GFC interfaces using ports 1 and 3.
    • 8g-4x — Split a port group into four 8GFC interfaces.
Default
S4148U-ON: Depends on the port profile activated.
Command Mode
PORT-GROUP
Usage Information
  • The mode {FC | Eth} command configures a port group to operate at line rate and guarantees no traffic loss.
  • The no version of the command resets port-group interfaces to the default Ethernet port mode/speed. Use the no mode command before you reset the mode on an interface.
  • To configure oversubscription on a FC interface, use the speed command.
  • To configure breakout interfaces on an Ethernet port, use the interface breakout command.
  • To view the currently active ports and subports, use the show interfaces status command.
Example
OS10(conf-pg-1/1/2)# mode FC 16g-2x
                                       
                                       OS10(conf-pg-1/1/8)# mode Eth 10g-4x
                                    
Example: Reset mode
OS10(conf-pg-1/1/2)# mode FC 16g-2x
                                       OS10(conf-pg-1/1/2)# no mode
                                       OS10(conf-pg-1/1/2)# mode Eth 10g-4x
