Using the CLI to configure port-based and protocol-based VLAN parameters

In the factory default state, all ports on the switch belong to the port-based default VLAN (DEFAULT_VLAN; VID=1) and are in the same broadcast/multicast domain.

The default VLAN is also the Primary VLAN.

You can configure additional static VLANs by adding new VLAN names and then assigning one or more ports to each VLAN.

The maximum VLANs accepted by the switch varies according to the switch series. VIDs numbered up to 4094 are allowed. This must include the default VLAN and any dynamic VLANs the switch creates if you enable GVRP (see GVRP).


Each port can be assigned to multiple VLANs by using VLAN tagging. See VLAN tagging rules.
