Configuring vlan ports

Still getting used to working with Aruba switches. I want to create another vlan. I didn't configure the switches originally, but, the vlan I need to create is similar to vlan 9 in the attached image. It has Trk1 tagged. I'm not sure how to add Trk1 to vlan 16. I tried through the web ui, but when I add Trk1 as tagged and hit Save, it tells me there were no changes. Also, the previous vlans have ipv6 disabled. In the web ui I tried to disable ipv6 in vlan 16, but after I save it, it still shows. Thank you for your help.

Re: Configuring vlan ports

Hi! please get used to work with CLI (Web based interface is mostly to show you some settings instead of permitting you to modify them).

VLAN 9 exists and logical interface Trk1 (aggregation of some physical ports) was made tagged member of that VLAN id.

 

To create a new VLAN - say you need VLAN id 16 - use the CLI command (config mode):

 

vlan 16

name <place-a-descripiton-of-this-vlan-here>

exit

 

it enters you in the VLAN 16 context (from which you can exit with the command exit).

To tag Trk1 with VLAN 16, inside the VLAN 16 context simply:

 

vlan 16

tagged trk1

exit

write memory (to save)

 

Done.

 

The point is: you will need also some access ports as untagged members of that new VLAN, isn't it? otherwise why transport it over the Trk1 interface?

 

To see the VLANs membership of a particular physical port/logical interface use:

 

show vlan port <port-id>/<trk-id> details

Re: Configuring vlan ports

I'm working through web based and CLI to get used to the settings and commands. Used 3com switches for years and just recently made a transition to Aruba. I've got some of the commands down that I need, but then run into some issues along the way. Thank you for your help, appreciate it.

Hi! glad you're familiarizing with ArubaOS-Switch CLI (an enhanced/developed HP ProVision CLI).

What issues exactly?

Re: Configuring vlan ports

Just getting used to commands. Stuck on the ipv6 disabling now. The person that setup the switches disabled ipv6 on each vlan. I created two vlans and ipv6 is enabled and I can't figure out how to disable ipv6 on the two vlans.
