EX200 virtual chassis question: PFE and Device ID in the member switch
In Virtual chassis on EX200 , each PFE is assigned a device ID . Is Device ID always equal to PFE ID?

Above device ID 0 is assigned to PFE 0 because PFE is numbered as zero?
Re: EX200 virtual chassis question: PFE and Device ID in the member switch
The EX2200-48T/P is a dual-PFE so each switch/FPC or member (in a VC) will have two PFE's each. And each PFE is assigned a device ID as rightly mentioned in the previous post. Note that EX2200-24T/P is a single PFE so you may only find one device ID on those.
