Port isolation on Huawei switches

On the test I’ll take the Huawei Quidway S2326TP-EI and Huawei Quidway S3928P-EI switches, in which the uplink Gigabit Ethernet port 0/0/1 (the Internet comes to it), all other ports are in the same VLAN and you need to prevent them from seeing each other. To do this, execute the port-isolate enable command for each interface (port), except uplink GigabitEthernet 0/0/1.

We connect to the switch through the console or telnet and switch to the mode of elevated privileges:


We execute the command for interfaces:

interface Ethernet 0/0/1
port-isolate enable
interface Ethernet 0/0/2
port-isolate enable
interface Ethernet 0/0/3
port-isolate enable
interface Ethernet 0/0/24
port-isolate enable
interface GigabitEthernet 0/0/2
port-isolate enable

For Huawei Quidway S3928P-EI there will be other commands:

interface Ethernet1/0/1
port isolate
interface Ethernet1/0/2
port isolate
interface GigabitEthernet 1/1/2
port isolate
interface GigabitEthernet 1/1/3
port isolate
interface GigabitEthernet 1/1/4
port isolate

Leave the interface setup mode:


Let’s leave the regime of elevated privileges:


Save the configuration:


Now the ports on which the port-isolate enable command is written do not see the other ports on which this command is also registered, they see only the ports where it is not registered, that is, in our case uplink port GigabitEthernet 0/0/1, and it, as on It does not have this command, it sees all the ports with the command and without.

The solution to the error “Service virtual port has existed already”

I noticed once on Huawei MA5683T when I added the service port for ONT the following error:

Failure: Service virtual port has existed already

As reported by the error, the service port is already registered for this ONT.
In my case, there was simply a misprint in ONT ID, it was accidentally indicated by the wrong one, after specifying the correct service port, it was registered.

And if you need to register several service port for one ONT, then see my article – Adding an ONT with trunk port to Huawei SmartAX MA5683T

Adding an ONT with trunk port to Huawei SmartAX MA5683T

Here is an example of adding ONT so that at the output of the ethernet port all VLANs are tagged.
Suppose OLT is configured for my article – Configuring Huawei SmartAX MA5683T through the console.
ONT for the test I’ll take TP-Link GP110 with the configured mode transparent and off DHCP, well, in fact with other single-port ethernet ONT setting is similar.
