M Commands


This chapter describes the Cisco Nexus 1000V commands that begin with the letter M.

mac access-list

To create a MAC ACL, use the mac access-list command. To remove the MAC ACL, use the no form of this command.

mac access-list name

no mac access-list name

Syntax Description

name

List name. The range of valid values is 1 to 64.


Defaults

The MAC ACL does not exist.

Command Modes

Global configuration (config)

Supported User Roles

network-admin

Command History

Release
Modification

4.0(4)SV1(1)

This command was introduced.


Examples

This example shows how to create a MAC ACL:

n1000v# configure terminal
n1000v(config)# mac access-list aL1
n1000v(config)# 

Related Commands

Command
Description

show access-list

Displays access list information.


mac address-table aging-time

To configure the aging time for entries in the Layer 2 table, use the mac address-table aging-time command. To return to the default settings, use the no form of this command.

mac address-table aging-time seconds [vlan vlan-id]

no mac address-table aging-time [vlan vlan-id]

Syntax Description

seconds

Aging time for MAC table entries for Layer 2. The range is from 120 to 918000 seconds. The default is 1800 seconds. Entering 0 disables the aging time.

vlan vlan-id

(Optional) Specifies the VLAN to apply the changed aging time.


Defaults

1800 seconds

Command Modes

Global configuration (config)

Supported User Roles

network-admin

Command History

Release
Modification

4.0(4)SV1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

Enter 0 seconds to disable the aging process.

The age value may be rounded off to the nearest multiple of 5 seconds. If the system rounds the value to a different value from that specified by the user (from the rounding process), the system returns an informational message.

When you use this command in the global configuration mode, the age values of all VLANs for which a configuration has not been specified are modified and those VLANs with specifically modified aging times are not modified. When you use the no form of this command without the VLAN parameter, only those VLANs that have not been specifically configured for the aging time reset to the default value. Those VLANs with specifically modified aging times are not modified.

When you use this command and specify a VLAN, the aging time for only the specified VLAN is modified. When you use the no form of this command and specify a VLAN, the aging time for the VLAN is returned to the current global configuration for the aging time, which may or may not be the default value of 300 seconds depending if the global configuration of the device for aging time has been changed.

Aging time is counted from the last time that the switch detected the MAC address.

Examples

This example shows how to change the length of time an entry remains in the MAC address table to 500 seconds for the entire device:

n1000v(config)# mac address-table aging-time 500
n1000v(config)# 
 
   

Related Commands

mac address-table static

To configure a static entry for the Layer 2 MAC address table, use the mac address-table static command. To delete the static entry, use the no form of this command.

mac address-table static mac-address vlan vlan-id {[drop | interface {type slot/port | port-channel number]}

no mac address-table static {address mac_addr} {vlan vlan-id}

Syntax Description

mac-address

Specifies the MAC address to add to the table. Use the format XXXX.XXXX.XXXX.

vlan vlan-id

Specifies the VLAN to apply static MAC address; valid values are from 1 to 4094.

The output interface specified cannot be a VLAN interface or a Switched Virtual Interface (SVI).

Use the no form to remove entries that are profiled by the combination of specified entry information.

Examples
