Table reference to associate the 'ifName' attribute of an Ethernet port or Logical Interface to the common / user-friendly name.

 

When working with Ethernet ports on SBC 1000/2000 platforms, one may observe that the names of Ethernet ports and logical interfaces are not the same as what appear on the WebUI tree view. The following table may be used to associate the 'ifName' attribute of an Ethernet port or Logical Interface to the common and user-friendly name.

Ethernet Ports on SBC1000 (REST resource: ethernetport)

Notes
eth0Ethernet 1 IPAn IP address available on the system. This is reachable using Ethernet Port 1 if that port is configured on 'Ethernet 1 VLAN'.
eth2Ethernet 2 IPAn IP address available on the system. This is reachable using Ethernet Port 2 if that port is configured on 'Ethernet 2 VLAN'.
vlan1.<X>

VLAN <X> IP

An IP address available on the system. This is reachable on any port, if that port has a membership to that VLAN <X>

Example: VLAN 100 IP
