Hi Aksher,


You create SVI on a layer 3 interface which acts like a default gateway /layer 3 interface for your clients which are in that particular vlan.


Because they are logical interfaces and do not have any physical interface you have to bind that vlan at layer 2 to some physical interface also but that is just a layer 2 binding and then you ca nconnect your end machine to that physical interface and define its gateway address as ip address you configured for that layer 3 SVI.

Hi Naidu,


To create a layer 3 interface


Switch(config)#interface vlan

Switch(config-if)#ip address x.x.x.x


You can use the same command with different vlan number and subnet address for multiple SVIs.
