Enabling and disabling Login Balancing mode

Although Login Balancing (LB) mode is enabled by default when you create a port group, you can disable and enable it using Network OS CLI commands.

Access Gateway and the PG policy must be enabled for the no modes LB or modes lb commands to succeed.

Enable or disable LB mode using the no modes LB or modes lb commands while in the port group's configuration mode.

  1. Enter the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
    switch# configure terminal
  2. Enter the rbridge-id id command to enter RBridge ID configuration mode for the specific switch.
    switch(config)# rbridge-id 3
  3. Enter the ag command to enter Access Gateway configuration mode.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-3)# ag
  4. Enter the port group ID, such as pg 8, to enter configuration mode for the port group.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-3-ag)# pg 8
  5. Perform one of the following steps:
    • To enable LB mode, enter modes mode_name.
      switch(config-rbridge-id-3-ag-pg-8)# modes lb
    • To disable LB mode, enter no modes mode_name.
      switch(config-rbridge-id-3-ag-pg-8)# no modes lb
