Not sure why you would need to do this.
Can you explain what you are trying to accomplish in more detail and why?

Yes, it is possible to have a bridge, or VS in bridge mode where it's two interfaces are traversing through port in SSM1 and SSM2

Hi @kobil,

That's an interesting question.

Is it better to use the same SSM with two ports or two different SSMˋs.

Are there performance differences here?

Regards

Heiko

Re: SSM BRIDGE IN CHASSIS 41K

No gain or loss by using 2 interfaces where 1 on each SSM or 2 on the same one, however a good use case is to have a cross SSM bond (bond where each slave resides in different SSM) and configure the bridge with VLANs on each side, this way if 1 SSM fails the other one will act as backup.

Its also possible to have 2 cross SSM bonds (one on each side) and accomplish this.
