ICX Switches - Port Name or Tags?

Hi All,

New to the Ruckus ICX line and Ruckus Cloud... so pardon my "freshie-ness" :)

If I wanted to be able to identify a port on my ICX7650 by what is plugged into it, am I better off using the "name" field or the "tags" field on the port? (assuming Tags is different than VLAN tags on the port, since they are separated in the UI?) 

...and if I do use the name field, I can still refer to ports as 1/1/1, 1/1/2, etc.? 

I am just thinking it would be useful to easily see ports with info like "esx-host-1" or "signage-display-4"... stuff like that.

TIA,

~D

Hello,

You can use 'port-name' to add a name to the port or range of ports as shown below.

'show interface brief' can list out all ports and its associated port names configured.

Examples

The following example assigns a name to a port.

device(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/1
device(config-if-e1000-1/1/1)# port-name Marsha

The following example assigns a name to a range of ports.

device(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/1 to 1/1/10
device(config-mif-1/1/1-1/1/10)# port-name connected-to-the nearest device

The following example assigns a name to multiple ports.

device(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/1 ethernet 1/1/5 ethernet 1/1/7
device(config-mif-1/1/1,1/1/5,1/1/7)# port-name connected-to-the nearest device
