Port VLANs are rarely used in networks which use VLANs across multiple switches. Port
VLANs are used when VLANs are setup up on a single switch and connectivity between the
system on different VLANs is needed however the broadcasts and multicasts are isolated
to the specific VLAN.
GE recommends using the set-port command for setting the port based VLAN as well.
General steps for using port VLANs are
1.
Plan your VLAN strategy and create a map of the logical topology that will
result from configuring VLANs. Include consideration for the interaction
between VLANs.
2.
Configure at least one VLAN in addition to the default VLAN
3.
Assign the desired ports to the VLANs
4.
Decide on trunking strategy - how will the VLAN information be propagated
from one switch to another and also what VLAN information will be
propagated across
5.
(Layer 3 consideration) check to see if the routing between the VLANs is
"working" by pinging stations on different VLANs
You can rename the default VLAN, but you cannot change its VID (1) or delete it from the
switch
Any ports not specifically assigned to another VLAN will remain assigned to the DEFAULT-
VLAN
Changing the number of VLANs supported on the switch requires the SAVE command to
save the new VLAN information
The following commands are used for VLANs. To define the VLAN type:
set vlan type=<port|tag|none>
To configure a VLAN:
configure vlan type=port
vlan type=port
To add VLANs:
add id=<vlan Id> [name=<vlan name>] port=<number|list|range>
To start VLANs:
start vlan=<name|number|list|range>
To save VLAN configuration:
