I just got a Foundry SX. I'm trying to Tag a port to the vlan 1 and to another vlan.
Problem is, I cannot tag the port to vlan 1, I get a "Invalid input"
tag e 9/3
"Invalid input -> 9/3"
It seems that it's expecting an HEX number.
On the other vlans, I don't get this issue.
How come I cannot tag vlan 1??
I want to do this cause my old equipment use vlan 1 for the network and I' doing a transition.

VALN 1 is the default VALN, you cannot apply tagging to this VLAN.
See note from page 405 of the config guide in FastIron Configuration Guide versio 7.2.00.
Assigning IEEE 802.1Q tagging to a port
When a port is tagged, it allows communication among the different VLANs to which it is assigned. A common use for this might be to place an email server that multiple groups may need access to on a tagged port, which in turn, is resident in all VLANs that need access to the server.
Tagging does not apply to the default VLAN.
When using the CLI, ports are defined as either tagged or untagged at the VLAN level.
So this means you will need to change to currect VALN on the other kit to something else other then 1 (or 4091 or 4092) then you will be good to go.

My problem is that I'm stuck with non-managed switchs for a little while.
I'll see what I can do until then
I'm just a bit disappointed that Brocade won't let you tag vlan 1 while HP Procurve let you do it. Even Cisco let you do it...

If you have no choice but to use vlan 1 as a user vlan then you need to change the default vlan. This VLAN 1 can be used as a normal VLAN.
Assigning a different VLAN ID to the default VLAN
When you enable port-based VLANs, all ports in the system are added to the default VLAN. By
default, the default VLAN ID is “VLAN 1”. The default VLAN is not configurable. If you want to use
the VLAN ID “VLAN 1” as a configurable VLAN, you can assign a different VLAN ID to the default
To reassign the default VLAN to a different VLAN ID, enter the following command.
FastIron(config)# default-vlan-id 4095
You must specify a valid VLAN ID that is not already in use. For example, if you have already defined
VLAN 10, do not try to use “10” as the new VLAN ID for the default VLAN. Valid VLAN IDs are
numbers from 1 – 4095.
