I am reading a preparation book for the CCNA Test 200-301. Currently, I am reading a section about DHCP and VLAN interfaces in a switch. The book shows an example of configuring this.

switch# configure terminal
switch# interface vlan 1
switch# ip address dhcp
switch# no shutdown
switch# end

To practice, I am using GNS3 and vIOS-L2. However, when I try the subcommand ip address dhcp, I get the following message:

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

I think this happens because vIOS does not have this command due to the version. So, how can I configure this in vIOS?

Thank you.

That feature is not available in the L2 version. You need the L3 version.
