Configuring an associated device
A smart link device is a device that supports Smart Link and is configured with a smart link group and a

An associated device is a device that supports Smart Link and receives flush messages sent from the

Configuring a Smart Link device
Configuration prerequisites
Before configuring a port as a smart link group member, shut down the port to prevent loops. You
can bring up the port only after completing the smart link group configuration.
Disable the spanning tree feature and RRPP on the ports that you want to add to the smart link
group, and make sure that the ports are not member ports of any aggregation group or service
loopback group.
A loop may occur on the network during the time when the spanning tree feature is disabled but Smart
Link has not yet taken effect on a port.
Configuring protected VLANs for a smart link group
You can configure protected VLANs for a smart link group by referencing MSTIs. Before configuring the
protected VLANs, configure the mappings between MSTIs and the VLANs to be protected.
