Creating a Topology Group
A topology group is a list of topologies with a unique name and a VLAN ID of its own. A topology group’s name must be unique across topology groups and topologies since it can be used anywhere the topology name can be used. All the topologies in a defined group must have the same type. For example, if the topology group mode is Routed, it only contains Routed topologies. The maximum number of topology groups for all platforms is 32.
