When I try to create subinterface on XR 3.6, i get the following:


RP/0/8/CPU0:PH482-EA1(config)#int Te0/0/1/0.?


RP/0/8/CPU0:PH482-EA1(config)#int Te0/0/1/0.

Are they serious that it no longer supports 4 billion subinterfaces?

Please, tell me that this is not true... I plan to have at least 3000 subinterfaces with maybe 5000+ in the future.

The biggest problem is their naming for provisioning department. I need long names for QinQ.

Cisco should have implemented <b>AT LEAST<b> 4096x4096=16777216 interfaces.

I think the naming notation is instance.subinterface

Instance is Rack/Slot/Module/Port where ethernet bundle instance range is from 0 to 65535

Subinterfafce range is 0 to 4095

Yeah, i did find that in the documentation, but I am already entering rack/slot/module/port, with the command I am describing, and i'm not seeing that 0-65535 range anywhere...
