Hi, your 2801 may need you to use the vlan database command to configuer vlan's. have a look below.


VLAN Configuration Mode

You can use the VLAN configuration commands to create or modify VLAN parameters for VLAN IDs 1 to 1005.

Enter the vlan database privileged EXEC command to access VLAN configuration mode:

Switch# vlan database

Switch(vlan)# vlan xxx name yyy

Switch(vlan)# exit

when using the vlan database you must type exit command to apply your changes.

x will be the vlan ID number and y will be the vlan name.
