In order to seperate LANs connecting through a 16 port FE interfaces on my Router, I created a new VLAN but cannot assign ports to this VLAN. See error message below. <%Access VLAN 810 does not exist. Please add it to vlan database>.Any idea on the way forward.

Hello Don,

you need to create the l2 vlan 810 object

this can be done in two different ways depending on IOS

a) in config mode

conf t

vlan 810

b) in vlan database mode

router# vlan database

router(vlan)# vlan 810

router(vlan)# apply


after this you can associate the ports to vlan 810

interface vlan 810 is instead a L3 logical interface

Hope to help

Many thanx, the vlan database method worked. The config mode didn't work.
