Configuring a Network Domain 169
In the previous example, a WX switch in the Mobility Domain at the
corporate office is configured as a member of a Network Domain that has a
local seed, as well as seeds at the two branch offices and the three sales
offices. The WX switch has an affinity value of 10 (highest) for the local seed,
and an affinity value of 7 for the seed at Branch Office 1. The WX switch has
an affinity of 5 (the default) for the other seeds in the Network Domain.
In the event that the local Network Domain seed becomes unavailable,
the WX switch then attempts to connect to the seed at Branch Office 1,
its next-highest-affinity seed. Once connected to this seed, the WX switch
then periodically attempts to connect to the local seed. When the WX
switch is able to connect to the local seed again, it drops the connection
to the seed at Branch Office 1.
When you configure a WX switch to be a member of a Network Domain,
you specify the seed(s) to which it can connect. As part of this configuration,
you can also specify the affinity the WX switch has for each seed.
To configure a Network Domain:
1 Designate one or more Network Domain seed WX switches. (See
“Configuring Network Domain Seeds” on page 169.)
2 Specify seed peers in the Network Domain. (See “Specifying Network
Domain Seed Peers” on page 170.)
3 Configure WX switches to be part of the Network Domain. (See
“Configuring Network Domain Members” on page 171.)
You can view the status of a Network Domain, clear members, and clear
all Network Domain configuration from a WX switch.
In a Network Domain, a member WX switch consults a seed WX switch to
determine a user’s VLAN membership in a remote Mobility Domain.
Use the following command to set the current WX switch as a seed
device within a specified Network Domain:
set network-domain mode seed domain-name net-domain-name
