First question here. I am very new to Cisco systems - about 3 days worth of knowledge.
Here is a clip from our old router's running-config:
interface Vlan1 description --- Office bound to fa0 ip address 10.2.0.254 255.255.192.0 ip nat inside ip virtual-reassembly
My understanding is that these vlans exist on this configuration simply as an alias to the "real" interfaces, to make it easier to swap them around if need be. I have successfully replicated all of the configuration into the new router except the creation of these vlans and the migration of the interface config to them.
So I've been trying to figure out how to create these vlans. I've been told I can create them with the
vlan database command from admin mode. However this gives me a warning about this method being deprecated:
host#vlan database % Warning: It is recommended to configure VLAN from config mode, as VLAN database mode is being deprecated. Please consult user documentation for configuring VTP/VLAN in config mode. host(vlan)#
so then I tried to find out what commands to use in
conf mode, and all I could find was posts like these, saying i simply use
vlan 1: https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/9819021/vlan-database-deprecated But this does not work for me:
host(config)#vlan 1 ^ % Invalid input detected at '^' marker. host(config)#vlan ? accounting VLAN accounting configuration ifdescr VLAN subinterface ifDescr host(config)#vlan
Is there some module that I still need to install? Some other setting I need to enable? Or should I continue using
vlan database even though it's deprecated?
