Is there a way to change the VLAN Number for existing VLAN?

Is there a way to change the VLAN Number for existing VLAN?

 

For example, VLAN 329 currently exists on the switch. I want to change it to VLAN 341.

 

Is there a way to change the VLAN number, or do I have to create a new VLAN 341 altogether?

Re: Is there a way to change the VLAN Number for existing VLAN?

You have to create a new VLAN 341.

 

From there, you can move the interfaces from VLAN 329 that you want to 341.

 

The easiest way to do this is probably be to copy the Interfaces to your clipboard.

 

Then do a "no vlan 329"

 

When you delete a VLAN any interfaces within it will be dropped back into the default VLAN, which basically acts like a parking space.

 

Then within your VLAN 341, paste what is on your clipboard.

 

Otherwise, you will be doing a a LOT of No Untagged... No Tagged... within the VLAN.

 

If this is a Layer-3 setup, you will probably want to copy the settings you have from the  associatedrouter ve interface as well.

 

 

If you are wihtin production, you can always add another VLAN and tag an interface into many VLANs (similar to how you could allow multiple different VLANs on a trunk).

 

That said, an untagged interface can exist within only one VLAN.  Hope that helps...
