hi,
no one knows how to change the A6860E switch from VC mode to standalone mode?
regarding to alcatel doc. they said that there is many way to do that, but the have mentioned one... which is :

auto-fabric admin-state disable remove-vc-reload
but i got an error message ( the this command is not apply for this platform "A6860E" ) .
in other hand they say that when the switch booting for the first time ( or by do factory reset....means "0" configuration )
there is a prompt ......
Do you want to disable auto-configurations on this switch [Y/N]? y
I have did many factory reset and did not see this prompt,so if any one knows other way please help.

BR

normaly there is no need to go to standalone mode. This means port naminig like 1/1 instead of 1/1/1. But with actual switches there is no other benefit. But you can do it by deleting both vc-files and creating an empty boot.cfg within working ... and reload from there.
I prefere to keep in vc-mode and to disable all the auto-fabric. with actual releases the following is the best way for 6860: delete all the cfg-files in both directories (vc* and boot.cfg). Power down. Disconnect all the LAN-cable. Power up.

Code: Select all

auto-fabric admin-state disable remove-global-config
in older releases the following commands where also necessary:

Code: Select all

mvrp disable
spb isis admin-state disable
no spb bvlan 4000-4015
spantree mode per-vlan
regards
Silvio
