Bridging on IOS XE (ISR 1100 Series) ??

Could any of you please tell me why I don't see the bridging related commands on IOS XE 16.6.6 (C1116-4P, IP Base) ?

 

C1116-4P(config)#interface Ethernet0/2/0
C1116-4P(config-if)#bridge?
% Unrecognized command
C1116-4P(config-if)#interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0
C1116-4P(config-if)#bridge?
% Unrecognized command
C1116-4P(config-if)#interface Vlan16              
C1116-4P(config-if)#bridge?
% Unrecognized command

Hello,

 

IOS-XE doesn't support the legacy bridge groups, it uses BDI. Check the document below. IP Base should in theory be sufficient. Can you create service instances ?

Thank you very much for your comment, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work...

  vlan-bridge  vlan-bridge protocol
! missing ieee C1116-4P(config)#bridge 1 protocol vlan-bridge C1116-4P(config)#bridge 1 route ip C1116-4P(config)#interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0 C1116-4P(config-if)#bridge-group ? % Unrecognized command C1116-4P(config-if)#bridge? % Unrecognized command

Thank you Georg, I tried it and it seems like working, except for the VDSL2-Interface (Ethernet0/2/0) or the integrated switch. As I originally intended to bridge between the VDSL2-Interface and a routed interface or a Vlan interface, it didn't achieve anything in the end, but I'm glad to have learned that bridging is configured differently on IOS XE.

C1116-4P(config)#interface Ethernet0/2/0 ! The VDSL-Interface
C1116-4P(config-if)#service ?
% Unrecognized command
C1116-4P(config-if)#interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0 ! The «regular» interface.
C1116-4P(config-if)#service ?
  instance  Configure Ether Service Instance

C1116-4P(config-if)#interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0 ! The first port of the integrated switch.
C1116-4P(config-if)#service ?
% Unrecognized command
C1116-4P(config-if)#interface Vlan16 ! An VLAN-Interface.
C1116-4P(config-if)#service ?
  instance  Configure Ether Service Instance
