I'm studying Private VLAN on C3560 Cisco Switch hardware. When i enter the


It doesn't contain the private-vlan command in the list of available commands. I turned the VTP mode to Transparent, VTP version = 1. VLAN 500 is created and active. IOS = 12.2(55)SE5. I followed this document in practiced [Catalyst 3560 Switch Software Configuration Guide, Release 12.2(55)SE] Still don't know why. ScreenShoot The version is here. Show version

How can i get through this situation? Thanks in advance.

  • Event when i change VTP version = 3, it still didn't have the command. Nov 9, 2016 at 9:06
  • Have you actually tried to enter the command, and is it rejected? Sometimes the 'list of commands' is not correct, so first of all I would like to confirm if it's just a cosmetic issue or if the command is really missing.

  • And, what image version / feature set are you running, can you include "show version" output in your post please.

    Can you add the output of "show version" and "show license"

  • Are you absolutely sure that this is a Catalyst 3560 with that IOS version? For instance, a Nexus would need the switch(config)# feature private-vlan global command run before the Private VLAN commands are available.

Thank you guys, my switch is running LANBASE license, just found out and let you know. At least I should have an ipbase license to run private-vlan feature. Topic should be closed now. Thanks again.
