By default, VLAN 1 is the default VLAN for all ports. You can configure the default VLAN for a port as
Use the following guidelines when configuring the default VLAN on a port:
Because an access port can join only one VLAN, its default VLAN is the VLAN to which it belongs
and cannot be configured.
Because a trunk or hybrid port can join multiple VLANs, you can configure a default VLAN for the
You can use a nonexistent VLAN as the default VLAN for a hybrid or trunk port but not for an
access port. Therefore, after you remove the VLAN that an access port resides in with the undo
vlan command, the default VLAN of the port changes to VLAN 1. The removal of the VLAN
specified as the default VLAN of a trunk or hybrid port, however, does not affect the default VLAN
setting on the port.
Do not set the voice VLAN as the default VLAN of a port in automatic voice VLAN assignment
mode. Otherwise, the system prompts error information. For information about voice VLAN, refer to
The local and remote ports must use the same default VLAN ID for the traffic of the default VLAN to
be transmitted properly.
A port configured with the default VLAN handles a frame as follows:
