Usage Guidelines

If configured, the loopback address is used as Mobility Master’s IP address. If you do not configure a loopback address for Mobility Master, the IP address assigned to VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. 1 is used as Mobility Master’s IP address. After you configure or modify a loopback address, you need to reboot Mobility Master.

Example

(host) [mynode] (config) #interface loopback

(host) [mynode] (config-submode)#ip address 10.2.22.220
