Extended Vlans matters on N5K

Unanswered Question
Mar 25th, 2010

Hello there,

Looking for some help on extended vlans design. Customer is using 90% of extented VLANs as follows based on exclusive services:


Total of 897 VLANs.

First question is: Do you know if extentend VLANs count as active VLANs in the 512 limit or we should not worry as this limit is only for normal VLANs? The datasheet is not clear enough and does not say if this limit is for both.

Second question is: Supposing question 1 is ok, when allowing these vlans in the trunk, should we also create these VLANs or they are already active (according to conf guide), there is, should we need to issue "vlan 1200" in conf mode for instance?

Thank you!

I have this problem too.
