When double quotation marks are used around the string, spaces are allowed in the string. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.
dfs_source_ip
-
Specifies the IPv4 address bound to a DFS group. The value is in dotted decimal notation.
dfs_source_vpn
-
Specifies the name of a VPN instance bound to a DFS group. The value is a string of 1 to 31 case-sensitive characters without spaces. If the character string is quoted by double quotation marks, the character string can contain spaces. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.
dfs_udp_port
-
Specifies the UDP port number of the DFS group. The value is an integer that ranges from 1025 to 65535.

-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Determines whether the config should be present or not on the device.
vbdif_bind_vpn
-
Specifies the name of the VPN instance that is associated with the interface. The value is a string of 1 to 31 case-sensitive characters, spaces not supported. When double quotation marks are used around the string, spaces are allowed in the string. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.
vbdif_mac
-
Specifies a MAC address for a VBDIF interface. The value is in the format of H-H-H. Each H is a 4-digit hexadecimal number, such as 00e0 or fc01. If an H contains less than four digits, 0s are added ahead. For example, e0 is equal to 00e0. A MAC address cannot be all 0s or 1s or a multicast MAC address.
vbdif_name
-
Full name of VBDIF interface, i.e. Vbdif100.
vpn_instance
-
Specifies the name of a VPN instance. The value is a string of 1 to 31 case-sensitive characters, spaces not supported. When double quotation marks are used around the string, spaces are allowed in the string. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.
