Using the Configuration Management VLAN Manager

Configuration Management VLAN Manager (SETTINGS menu > Configuration Management > VLAN Manager) enables easy and dynamic update of VLAN configurations. Through the VLAN Manager, you can add, edit, and delete VLANs from individual devices. Additionally, you can copy and move single or multiple VLANs from one network device to other VLAN-capable network devices.

VLAN Manager Requirements

To manage device VLAN configurations, ensure devices meet the following requirements.

For more information on Cisco trunking, see Cisco's documentation.

To configure device VLANs using the VLAN Manager:

  1. Click Select Device... to choose a device from the Select Device dialog.
  2. Click Discover to discover and view the VLAN configuration for the selected device. The discovered VLAN information is displayed in the VLANs section of the dialog.
  3. In the VLANs section of the dialog, configure device VLANs,
    • Click Add VLAN to Device to add a VLAN Index to the device.
    • Select a VLAN, then click Edit to modify its properties.

    Note: You cannot edit the VLAN Index. If you want to modify a VLAN's index number, you must delete the VLAN and add the VLAN again with the desired index number. You cannot edit VLANs that are reserved by the switch vendor. For example, default VLANs and Cisco Reserved (1000-1024).

    • Select a VLAN, then click Delete to remove it from the device.

    Note: You will be prompted before you remove a VLAN from a device.

    • Select a VLAN, then click Copy To to duplicate the VLAN Name/Index configuration to another VLAN capable device.
    • Select multiple VLANs in which to copy to another network device, then click Bulk Action. Additionally, you can use Bulk Action to copy one or more VLANs to multiple network devices at one time.
  4. In the Port VLAN Configuration section of the dialog, configure VLAN port assignments, and/or commit configuration changes.
    • Select a VLAN switch port, then click Assign To to set the static (primary) VLAN ID.
    • Select a VLAN switch port, then click Add/Edit Trunk to modify its Trunk configuration tags.
    • Select a VLAN switch port, then click Remove Trunk to return the port to its default, non-trunking configuration.
    • Select multiple VLAN switch ports, then click Bulk Action > Assign To to set the static (primary) VLAN ID.
  5. Click Commit Changes to copy the currently running config of the selected device to the startup config.
  6. Click Close to exit the dialog.
