Usage Guidelines

By default, Ruckus Layer 3 switches support Layer 2 switching. These devices modify the routing protocols that are not supported on the devices. If you want to disable Layer 2 switching, you can do so globally or on individual ports, depending on the version of software your device is running.

Enabling or disabling Layer 2 switching is supported in Layer 3 software images only. Enabling or disabling Layer 2 switching is not supported on virtual interfaces.

Ruckus FCX 6430, FCX 6450, FCX 6430-C12, ICX 6450, and ICX 6610 devices support both the ingress and egress L2 traffic suppression on a route-only port.

Ruckus ICX 7750, ICX 7450, ICX 7250, and ICX 7150 devices support only ingress L2 traffic suppression on a route-only port.

The no form of the command enables Layer 2 switching on a Layer 3 switch.

To disable Layer 2 switching only on a specific interface, go to the interface configuration level for that interface, and then configure the command.

Examples

The following example globally disables Layer 2 switching on a Layer 3 switch.

device(config)# route-only
device(config)# exit
device# write memory
device# reload

The following example enables Layer 2 switching on a Layer 3 switch.

device(config)# no route-only
device(config)# exit
device# write memory
device# reload

The following example disables Layer 2 switching on Ethernet interface 1/1/1.

device(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/1
device(config-if-e1000-1/1/1)# route-only
device(config-if-e1000-1/1/1)# end
device# write memory
device# reload
