And after the holidays …
We can bring up a subject of 10GE interfaces on Huawei CX600-X1-X2 platform. The short subject but can be useful.
Let’s imagine that you have NPUI board installed on the router:
<CX600>display elabel 1 BoardType=CX67NPUI20 Item=03030MDQ Description=CX600,CX67NPUI20,Network Processing Unit Integrated with 2-Port 10GBase LAN/WAN-XFP
The first you have to do is to activate licence for 10GE interfaces:
<CX600>license active licence.dat
Let’s check the license usage:
<CX600>display license resource usage Info: Active License on master board: cfcard:/license.dat FeatureName | ConfigureItemName | ResourceUsage CXFEA03 LCX610GP00 1/0 CXFEA03 LCX6L3VN00 1/1
License activation does not mean that you already have 10GE interfaces. Remember to activate 10GE for specific slot, in our case for slot 1:
<CX600>sys Enter system view, return user view with Ctrl+Z. [WRO1013-HC-1]slot 1 [WRO1013-HC-1-slot-1]active 10ge-interface <CX600>display license resource usage Info: Active License on master board: cfcard:/license.dat FeatureName | ConfigureItemName | ResourceUsage CXFEA03 LCX610GP00 1/1 CXFEA03 LCX6L3VN00 1/1
Without license and port activations, by default, traffic on 10GE interfaces is limited to 10Mbbs!
