Enabling and disabling GVRP on the switch (CLI)



Enables GVRP on the switch.

no gvrp

Disables GVRP on the switch.


GVRP can be enabled only if max-vlans is set to no more than 256 VLANs. While GVRP is enabled on the switch, you cannot apply any ACLs to VLANs configured on the same switch. A GVRP link can include intermediate devices that are not GVRP-aware. To understand and use GVRP, you need a working knowledge of 802.1Q VLAN tagging. See 802.1Q VLAN tagging.

GVRP assigns dynamic VLANs as Tagged VLANs. To configure the VLAN as Untagged, you must first convert it to a static VLAN.

A VLAN enabled for jumbo traffic cannot be used to create a dynamic VLAN. A port belonging to a statically configured, jumbo-enabled VLAN cannot join a dynamic VLAN.
