Managing configurations on a modular chassis
The configuration data on a modular chassis are managed in a distributed fashion. The Brocade VDX 8770-4 and VDX 8770-8 chassis maintain two types of configuration data, global configuration parameters and slot configuration parameters. The global configuration, such as the VLAN configuration, applies to the entire chassis. The slot configuration includes specific parameters that apply only to the line cards.
The startup configuration is maintained at the chassis level and includes both chassis-wide and slot-specific configuration parameters.
