Pre-configuring a Mikrotik switch


Mikrotik switches require pre-configuration before being added to DCImanager. To set up switching between the ports of the device, the ports must be combined into a bridge interface. If several bridge interfaces are created on the switch, DCImanager handler will use the first in the list of interfaces.

Before adding the switch to DCImanager:

  1. Create a bridge interface on your device. Connect all ports which should be combined into the L2-segment to that interface.
  2. Enable the interface.
  3. Configure PVID (Port VLAN ID) for this interface. PVID will be used as the native VLAN for the ports other than the VLAN.
  4. Configure the uplink port.
  5. Enable VLAN filtering in the interface settings.
