Error assigning port to VLAN on 877

Answered Question

I've got an 877 running IOS 12.4.6, and I want to create two VLANs (1 & 26)


1 already exists, and all the ethernet ports are already in it.


I create VLAN 26 by doing:


int vlan 26

ip add x.x.x.x 255.255.255.0


Now, if I go to an interface and do:


int f0

switchport mode access vlan 26


I get the message back:


%Access VLAN 26 does not exist. Please add it to vlan database


What am I missing ?


Thanks,

First change the mode to vtp server i.e


vlan database#vtp server


then create vlans.

Hi


I think u need to first create a vlan before u assign any port to it.what the message says that u need to create a vlan first.ie.


router#vlan database

router(vlan database)# vlan 26 name (anyname)


Thanks

Minor progress:


Router#vlan database

Router(vlan)#vlan 26 name "Clients"

VLAN 26 added:

Name: Clients


Router(vlan)#show

VLAN ISL Id: 1

Name: default

Media Type: Ethernet

VLAN 802.10 Id: 100001

State: Operational

MTU: 1500

Translational Bridged VLAN: 1002

Translational Bridged VLAN: 1003


VLAN ISL Id: 26

Name: Clients

Media Type: Ethernet

VLAN 802.10 Id: 100026

State: Operational

MTU: 1500

Router(vlan)#exit

In CLIENT state, no apply attempted.

Exiting....

Router#vlan database

Router(vlan)#show


And VLAN26 has disappeared....
