Identifying physical IRF ports on the member switches
Identify the physical IRF ports on the member switches according to your topology and connection
shows the physical ports that can be used for IRF connection.

panel can be bound to any IRF port.
The physical ports on the same
interface card must be bound to the
same IRF port.
