Hi,

in the Cisco 7600 we have the following command to configure a service instance:

service instance id ethernet  [service-name]

Searching information for the meaning of the service-name option I didn't find nothing..

Do you know what service-name do and when (or why) it might be configured?

Often the service instance configuration is

service instance 100 ethernet without any service-name

thx

Thats interesting, as I have configured thousands of Service Instances and never knew that option existed.

Starting with SRA back in the day (didnt mean to rhyme) to SRE and now of course 15.xx

if you find out post for my curiosity

Hi,

Router(config-if-srv)#service instance id {Ethernet [service-name]}

Creates an service instance (instantiation of an EVC) on an interface. It sets the device into the config-if-srv sub-mode.

In the past, you need to use sub-interfaces when associating a vlan to a router interface. With service instance you don't need to do that anymore. Pretty cool.
