In this video, we'll cover how to add and configure multiple VLANs on Brocade campus switches.



Video Transcript:


0:07 – This is the Brocade feature

0:08 - explainer series I'm Terry Henry and in this episode we're going to cover

0:12 - removing multiple vlans from an interface for all vlans from an

0:18 - interface with a single command and from the VLAN removing all the tagged ports or

0:24 - all the untagged boards with a single command. So in the past the way we build

0:29 - our vlans you go to the you go to the VLAN itself and you add the port's

0:35 - either is tagged or untagged so here we see VLAN 10 tagged ethernet 1/1/1 etcetera

0:41 - you can have you can add a range of vlans etc but you need to add that port

0:45 - into each one of the vlans.

0:47 - So if you need to remove those vlans you know prior to this new command you had

0:53 - to go to each VLAN and remove to a no-tag d or no untag d on that

0:58 - interface in each feeling and so that was pretty time-consuming especially if

1:01 - you had an interface with you know a hundred vlans on it

1:05 - you've got a hundred or a couple of hundred commands to type out to do that

1:09 - so we've added this new remove vlan command which makes it much much more

1:13 - efficient so if we look at interface here show interface e 1/1/1

1:18 - we can see that 1/1/1 is a member of 11 layer two vlans currently all

1:23 - right

1:24 - they're all tag so if we want to remove one or multiple or all of the vlans

1:31 - from that interface we go into config t, go to the interface go to the interface itself

1:36 - e 1/1/1 and then we have a few choices here so we could do or remove vlan

1:41 - VLAN and give it a specific number so vlan 10

1:45 - we could do a range so we can say 11 to 15

1:53 - it will remove a number with a single command or you can remove all of the vlans

2:00 - from an interface just with a remove vlan all.

2:03 - So at this point if we go back and look at that interface show interface

2:09 - e 1/1/1 it is now a member of only a single layer two VLAN because it's now

2:17 - been taken out of

2:18 - tagged mode and completely and put back into the default VLAN which is vlan one

2:23 - so that's pretty cool the other thing we added was you can now go to the VLAN

2:29 - itself so let's say we go to vlan20

2:31 - you can tell it to remove all the tagged ports are all the untagged ports

2:36 – from a vlan with a single command without having to know what VLAN numbers are on

2:39 - that port right so we can say remove tag ports we'll remove all

2:50 - the tag ports

2:51 - we can also say remove untagged port and it will remove the untag so as easy as that

3:00 - so if there's many many vlans; many many ports in that VLAN you don't

3:06 - need to remove those one by one or even range you can just help to remove all

3:11 - the tagged and all the untagged just as simple as that

3:14 - so great new command it really saves a lot of work and I hope you enjoy

3:20 - thanks for joining
