Removal of Vlan

Unanswered Question
Sep 21st, 2007

Hello All,

Why is that when i remove a Vlan, the interface associated it is not return to the list of default Vlan interfaces?.

Hence whenever a new Vlan is created the formerly removed interface is automatically assigned to the newly created Vlan.

How can i return the removed Vlan's interface number to the list of the default interfaces where a new choice ould be made?

Thanking all in advance

I have this problem too.

Ideally it should go back to default vlan.

As long as you have "switchport access vlan x" configured for the interface, the interface will be associated with vlan x, even if vlan x is not created.When you remove this command the port becomes part of vlan1.Hope this clarifies.

Maybe it depends on the switch's IOS version because I always thought that the switchport will default to vlan 1 if the vlan to which it belonged was ever removed....?
