520 Express switch, max number of VLANs allowed ?

Unanswered Question
Aug 23rd, 2009

Hi, helping a friend set up a network using 3750 as the core and 520 Express as remote switches ( 24 LC versions )

Reading cisco own documentation on the web it suggests that upto 32 Vlans can be configured on the 520's, see link :


On the Layer 2 details it specifies "Upto 32 VLANs".

But using CCA I am only about to configure 16 before I get the "maximum vlans" error message ?

My friend requires more than this and is hoping this is not the limit !!

Any advice appreciated.


I have this problem too.

The maximum number of VLANs allowed for UC500 is 15.

If you go on the command line and try to create a vlan, it should not work either.

The documentation is wrong, to fix it, we will need a TAC case.
