SFE2000: default VLAN problem

Unanswered Question

Hi, i have a problem with SFE2000.

I have 2 VLAN -> 1 (default) and 77

on port 1 i have VLAN 1 untagged

on LAG1 (G3+G4) i have VLAN 77T and 1U

on LAG1 i have attached a vmware esxi 4.1 that has management interface on (VLAN 1) and virtual machine traffic data on VLAN 77 (tagged)

now ... from pc connected to port 1 ... i see only for some seconds ... then i loose it (usualy i don't ...)

that's really strange ... seems something about defalut vlan 1

i could change all management port on new vlan 100 ... but ... is there any way to manage switch on a vlan different from default one (1)?

Hi Stefano.

I guess you have the latest version of code on the SFE2000.

Version 1 code was not as flexible as current code versions  and only wanted to use the predefined vlans.  Version 3 code made the switch so much much more flexible.

So if your switch isn't on version 3 code, go the link below and download the code via 'download software' option.


I could check the manual, but I believe this layer 3 switch, you can select the management vlan when you are at version 3 of the code..

So if your SFE2000 is at version 3 code and under phone  warranty and still having issues, why not see if a SBSC technician can look at the switch to determine operator or switch error?  To get to a SBSC technician check the link directly below.


Hope this provides a direction for you to move forward.

regards Dave
