I set up on an Alcatel OS6960E (via console cable) a VLAN 99 with ip addr 192.168.164.33. My laptop ethernet ip is 192.168.164.29.

I connected my laptop to ethernet port 1/1/1 assigned to VLAN 99 but I can't ping or ssh to 192.168.164.33. What am I doing wrong?

The commands I used are:

vlan 99 name "IP management"
vlan 99 members port 1/1/1 untagged
ip interface vlan_99_ip address 192.168.164.33

    I'm not familiar with Alcatel equipment, but is it normal that you don't input a subnet mask or prefix length with the IP address? Also did you check that interface vlan99 is up? – JFL Aug 11 '16 at 8:32

To enable or disable the administrative status for an existing VLAN, enter vlan followed by an existing VLAN ID and either enable or disable

--> vlan 99 enable

Give this a go and see if that works. It's worth checking the status of the VLAN interface and make sure it isn't down. I got this from the configuration guide here on page 112.

Hope this helps you on your quest.

You missed the vlan NNN statement at the end of the last line. Your vlan_99_ip is the mnemonic name of the L3 switch interface. It can't be assigned to the vlan 99 automatically.

You config should be like this

vlan 99 name "IP management"
vlan 99 members port 1/1/1 untagged
ip interface vlan_99_ip address 192.168.164.33 mask 255.255.255.0 vlan 99 admin enable

BTW, the command show ip interface show you which vlan your interface is bound to. For example:

-> show ip interface
Total 4 interfaces
        Name            IP Address     Subnet Mask   Status Forward  Device

Loopback             127.0.0.1       255.0.0.0           UP      NO Loopback

VLAN-355             192.168.1.15    255.255.255.0       UP     YES vlan 355
