VLAN Deletion/Re-creation Question

Unanswered Question
Oct 29th, 2005
User Badges:

Hi All,


just brushing up on some basics, like creating vlans/trunks.vtp domains etc. Anyway, I did the below, but, upon re-creating vlan 2 after deleting it, the same status and ports were assigned to it. Should I have reloaded or something, after the delete, before re-creating.? I was of the understanding, that if you delete a vlan, the ports assigned to that vlan become assigned to no vlan.(meaning you gotta reassign them). I was planning to do just that, but, it happened all by itself. Cheers.

I think it has something to with the fact that vlan 2 was not really active , if you look at the first display it shows vlan 2 as act/lshut which means the vlan was shutdown . Probably if you activated the vlan first and then deleted it . Also I don't think it is going to change the "switchport access vlan 2" settings on the switchports unless you manually change them even if you delete the vlan in the vlan database , the database doesn't have anything to do with the switchport settings , those are handled in the running config file.

Most newer Catalyst switches will add a vlan x automatically when you configure "switchport access vlan x" on a switchport interface. However, after that, if the vlan x was deleted, the config on that interface does NOT go away.


vlan information is stored in vlan.dat database and the interface config is stored in NVRAM. They are two separate information base. So what you see is expected on the Catalyst Switches.
