No dot1q-tunnel in 3850/3650 switches?

I was looking at these to replace a couple of aging 3560Gs. First, I discovered they run ios-xe, which could be fun to try, but my mood worsened as the command references indicate that although the "switchport mode dot1q-tunnel" command is available when you do "?", it is not functional.


What could possibly be the reasoning behind this?

Itchy... Tasty!

    When I spoke to Cisco about this at the end of last year, they said the command set was available on the 3850's but it wasn't functional and that there was no set date for it to become functional. I no longer work for a company that has a support contract for these products so you may wish to contact Cisco to see if there has been an update.

    That's very interesting. I guess they see it as more of a SP oriented feature (ME3400/3600 line). Sucks though, I have a prod setup using exactly this feature between two pairs of 3750s at primary/DR, so will make a mental note when refresh time comes along.
