Hi every body!
my book defines active vlan as vlan which is defined on switch and and has ports assigned to it.
However ,same book shows the out put of " show vlan"
vlan name status ports
2 vlan 0002 active fa0/4
5 vlan 0005 active
The vlan 5 is shown as active though no port is assigned to it which contradicts the book definition of active vlan.
Thanks a lot!
The other thing that will put a VLAN into the active state is if there is a trunk port on the switch which carries traffic for that VLAN. Does this switch have a trunk port which has VLAN 5 as one of its VLANs?
