AFAIK you wont be able to configure any ip address on the L2 ports , the ports are very much like any other normal L2 switch ports and you wont be able to configure individual ip address to them. Instead you can confiugre SVI(Switched Virtual Interface) vlan interfaces with ip address and make the ports as a member of those vlans.

Did you create the layer 2 vlan in the vlan database ? At the prompt type vlan database and enter vlan 2 then exit .
