i like to configure two ports in dedicated mode (eth4/1 + eth4/2).
the ports are on a modultype "N7K-F132XP-15" (32x10GE)
all ports are in one vdc membership (default configuration)
ive tried this for port eth 4/1:
bciscon7k01(config)# int eth 4/1,eth 4/3,eth 4/5,eth 4/7
bciscon7k01(config-if-range)# int eth 4/1
bciscon7k01(config-if)# rate-mode dedicated
after that i get the following message:
"Ignoring command for interface Ethernet4/1 as rate-mode is fixed."
i didnt find any documentation to this error message.
whats wrong in my configuration?
On a 32-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet module, each set of four ports can handle 10 gigabits per second (Gb/s) of bandwidth. You can use the rate-mode parameter to dedicate that bandwidth to the first port in the set of four ports or share the bandwidth across all four ports.
Table 2-1 identifies the ports that are grouped together to share each 10 Gb/s of bandwidth and which port in the group can be dedicated to utilize the entire bandwidth.
Ports Groups that Can Share Bandwidth
Ports that Can be Dedicated to Each 10-Gigabit Ethernet of Bandwidth
1, 3, 5, 7
2, 4, 6, 8
9, 11, 13, 15
10, 12, 14, 16
17, 19, 21, 23
18, 20, 22, 24
25, 27, 29, 31
26, 28, 30, 32
Note All ports in each port group must be part of the same virtual device context (VDC). For more information on VDCs, see the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Virtual Device Context Configuration Guide, Release 5.x.
I found this link from Cisco doc.
Answers your issue.
I hope that helps.
N7K-F132XP-15 doesn't have a concept of dedicated/shared mode ports as there is no port-ASIC level oversubscription. dedicated/shared config is for use on "M1" class of modules.
